I guess we already covered the fact that I fed a rhino. I am on day 2-and-a-half of my adventure, typing this from somewhere on the California coast.
On top of touching a rhino, I also petted a zebra.
And was eyeball to eyeball with a bunch of flamingos with nothing between us but a plastic cup full of moist dog food.
I made friends with a tiny horse.
And spent some quality time with my smallest cousin… and her two brothers… in their wild natural environment.
I saw a whole lot of sleepy otters.
A seagull played chicken with my face.
I bonded with my younger daughter.
I tamed the ferocious ground squirrel.
And I charmed this savage beast.
More stories, details and photos to follow.
Endearing and Wonderful Post.
I could almost feel as if I were there observing how serendipitous life can sometime be.
What else to say?
Oh I know…
“If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah
What a neat achievement that would be.”
“If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Maybe take an animal degree.
We’d study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea.”
“We would converse in polar bear and python,
And we could curse in fluent kangaroo.
If people asked us, can you speak in rhinoceros,
We’d say, “Of courserous, can’t you?”
From Doctor Dolittle

This is going to be a very animal-centric adventure.
