I have a very good reason for not adding any cards over the past two weeks. We have just returned from a wonderful trip to South Africa. We had several goals - to visit a seminary for which we provide some support; to see a lot of animals; and to learn more about the history and the people of this part of the world. This is not a travel blog, but I want to include a few photos. Check my other links to see more! In the photo above, hubby and I are petting a four month old lion cub - not scary at all.
There were about 40 elephants in this group. Each zebra is unique - no two have the same stripes.
That 5 year old elephant challenged our van - came within about 10 feet - was finally persuaded to leave.
Our group leader persuaded me to hold this albino python.. Did I really do that??? The giraffe obviously believes the leaves are better on the far side of the tree!
