Between a Rock and a Hard Place

 In Zimbabwe, we often enjoyed the fantastic rock formations in Matopos National Park.

It has often been suggested that Matopos is the site of King Solomon's Mine. Certainly there are caves, and hidden caves, and caves never seen by anyone living. It is a very mysterious place, haunted with magicians who hold ceremonies in moon lit evenings.

The leopards are everywhere in Matopos, but you never see them. You never see the leopard, but he sees you. The leopard comes at night, moves in silence and takes your goats.

In the ancient caves a thousand diamonds, rubies, old bones, and scattered parchments. King Solomon sent his people here to dig the gold for the Temple.

The magicians still come in the moonlight. And tourists like me pose for pictures.
