There are going to be some sites on my life list (of places I want to go in my life) that I've been thinking about for much of my life. This isn't one of those.
The Great Zimbabwe National Monument is an impressive historic site that was recognized as an early entry on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Built between the 11th and 15th Centuries, the structure features some great craftsmanship that reminds me just a tiny bit of Peublo Bonita at Chaco Canyon. One difference here is that this one is enclosed in a very tall circular wall.
