no. we weren’t in africa. we were in fact in northern ohio. rather near lake erie. so this wasn’t anything even approaching a real safari.

it was, however, hilarious.

we went on an impulsive day trip earlier this week. to a drive through safari animal park, a small ohio town with a carousel (where they make/repair carousel horses too), and an old abandoned prison.

’cause we are that kind of awesome.

more pictures forthcoming. but i wanted to start here. because these are funny. our car was SWARMED by little critters. and a few big ones. (see my flickr for more: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48825088@N00/) i think we laughed the entire time. if you ever decide to do this kind of thing, remember that it’s surprisingly hard not to pet the animals when they literally shove their heads into your face.

note: “objects in mirror are closer than they appear” is particularly apropos here.
