(Mating lions. Up close and very personal.)
( And yes, leopards never change their spots. But would you, if you looked this good?)
( Hmm, proof that a fat ass can be gorgeous! The rhinos that reminded me of the William Kentridge production of The Magic Flute)
(Wild Dogs. Taken pre-kill. We saw ten of them hunt and kill a buck...Horrific, but I still eat meat, so can't be too judgemental)
(Open Wide. The Hippo that reminded me of the old Chomp ad. Remember that one?)
A very special place in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve ( adjacent to the Kruger National Park) with some very special friends is where we went for a while. We ate amazingly well, (Jenny and Lovonne you inspire me!) Laughed way too much (as if there is such a thing as too much laughter), slept (as one only can when the temperatures are 37 degrees and still rising) and marveled at African sunsets (is there anything more humbling?) The only battles to be fought were against the mozzies, but we bravely fought off the threat of malaria with copious amounts of Tabbard. And a few large (purely medicinal) Bombay Sapphire G &T's. It was both healing and happy. The holiday, not the gin...
Remember these scenes from the movies?
White Mischief: 'Oh God, not another f*cking beautiful day.'
Out Of Africa: 'Perhaps he knew as I did not, that the earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road.'
