CLARIFICATION — Regarding the article on Zambia in the April ’11 issue, subscriber Christopher Hartley of Ormond Beach, Florida, wrote, “I enjoyed reading about Ms. Schumacher’s visit to Zambia and Vic Falls. I would, however, raise a question about her statement, ‘Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world’.”

Yes, that statement should have been qualified. Victoria Falls is not the tallest waterfall, but, when considering its height and width, it is the largest sheet of falling water in the world. — Editor
