15 Zimbabwe Featured Country:
At 91 percent, Zimbabwe has one of the highest literacy rates (percentage of people who can read and write) in all of Africa. Wealth, or the appearance of it, is important, so people like to be well dressed in public. After a meal, it is polite to softly clap one’s hands and say Ndaguta (I am satisfied). Throughout Zimbabwe are formations called kopjes, huge rocks balanced on smaller rocks. Resource: Photo by Kevin Walsh/Flickr
