Into South Africa

with our intrepid guides and a rhino delight.

 

And while we were away this afternoon, a pack of baboons broke through our front door (wood frame ripped off, and somehow slid a thin item through the latch), a first for this hotel, and trashed the whole room! All glassware broken, all fruit, soap (!) and minibar items raided. They really wanted the Pepto Bismol, and chewed through the plastic bottle. They threw items from the garbage into the toilet. A real Animal House party… They opened the plastic case and stole my son’s retainer (the only missing non-food-like-item)! Bizarre. Imagine a baboon sporting a retainer in his mouth looking so humano-cool.
