I've been travelling for over a year now and I've met some amazing people who love what they do and the animals they care for but I must tell you, home is a great place. When I call my friends in South Africa there's always an interesting animal story to be told. Where else do you find baboon troups wandering the streets like gangsters, Vervet monkeys stealing food from kitchens, hippos pitching up at your back door (given, this was at a friend's house who works for Nature Conservation), traffic jams caused by whales and Dassies (a Rock Hyrax) eating your lunch?! And the latest story is that an otter walked into a restaurant in Cape Town. Man, they must have been serving really fresh "Catch of the Day"!

Anyway, after causing a bit of chaos amongst the staff, the local retired harbour master was called in to help catch the "guest" but his attempts ended up with a chunk bitten out of a broom.
|Yum, yum, a broom!|
So never a dull day in SA!
I'll be posting more travel pics soon, Sea Fans so keep your eyes peeled.
Have a great weekend.
