Some days just leave you hanging


So I now have officially seen (and, of course, photographed) The Big 5. Which means I have to remember what they are, which isn't too much unlike trying to remember who was on the Tuesday/Thursday-morning ride. OK, I'll try. Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Leopard... and that's as far as I can get. Time to look it up. OK, just did, the missing ingredient is the Buffalo. It's an odd list, because some simply aren't very big (Leopard for example) and the Buffalo just doesn't seem very threatening. Nevertheless, the place we're staying tonight (in the Serengeti) doesn't allow you to leave your room without a "guard" once dark, because there are apparently all manner of dangerous critters out there, looking for food & water. Not sure if it's a marketing gimmick or real, but I'm not going to be the one to test it out. More photos likely later. And starting Sunday night, we'll get back to bike stuff, I promise! --Mike--
