    Background: The event, largest held in Africa, was held on the largest stretch of water in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, apart from the fast growing Kariba lake. Here in Salisbury Rhodesia, it is mid winter, and many degrees cooler than the reported U.K. hot weather, average around the 80's in Salisbury. This material may make a diversion from war and crime.
