Really Big Putty Tat!!!
Hello! Well, I just got back from three weeks in Africa on Safari in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. Needless to say the experience was INCREDIBLE and I took just a few pictures! I will be posting several of them here over the next little while but it is going to take me some time to go through the 3000-4000 that I brought home. I promise not to post them all :)
On our last day in Africa we were in Victoria Falls and there were several options for activities--in honor of my parent's 43rd wedding anniversary my sister and I took the family on a lion walk, an elephant safari, and a sunset cruise on the Zambezi just above the falls. For the lion walk we walked about a kilometer through a private game reserve accompanied by three really darned cute 14 month old lions. In the middle of the walk they had the lions lie down and we each got to pet them. Yes, I actually got to pet a lion!! He was actually pretty soft and cuddly--more so given that he didn't show me his claws! His main was a bit rougher, but wow, I pet a lion!
Update..it was actually 7230 picts
