Rhodes' Grave at View of the World, in Zimbabwe. Wow, I didn't know that Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) was named for Cecil Rhodes (Rhodes' scholarship), and I didn't know the tumultuous history of that country (just bits and pieces). I love learning new things! Africa Stage: Monica Dispatch - June 30, 1999

Darn! I saw this and didn't catch on until I posted--thought it was just comment and I put it out of my mind. Sheesh!

Yeah, I figured it out but I'd say it's your turn. I was being goofy this round since I already had two strikes!

I give it to Barabara as she also commented on the significance as the grave of Rhodes - the man who really opened up Southern Africa - a key part of my history lessons at school. I went to alan Wilson High School - there is a memorial for him as well there.

I have to hurry out, so I don't have time to look for anything better. I will be back late tonight, so there won't be any clues during the day.

What is this?
