Your Lion Eyes

Today I went on a safari!

Which, as it turns out, is basically Jurassic Park, but the animals are younger and it doesn’t all go horribly wrong.

The look on its face is ‘argh I can’t eat you’. This is the same face I have when I walk past bakeries.

It looks disappointed to be the only animal in this park that can’t kill you.

They purr when you pet them! For an extra 100 bucks, you can cuddle with them for an hour. This is 50 percent more than I usually pay for simulated intimacy, so I passed.

I did not know this, but our guide told us ostriches are extinct in the wild, they can only be found in captivity. And, if Berlin is any indication, the frozen aisle.

These looked majestic and powerful until our guide told us the car behind us had paid extra to hunt them.

They seem to not like engine noise, so about 80 percent of my photos are of antelope butts.

‘Are you done shooting?’ the guide asked. ‘The other car is about to start shooting.’ I hope it cost more than the cuddles.

    Wow. It’s so strange to think about the shooting. Hmm. My mind is kind of blown away. I could never do that kind of thing for entertainment, only to provide dinner for myself and loved ones.
    Nice post.
    Hey whatever happened with that vineyard?
