The first part of Safari World was a drive through in the van. There were hundreds of storks everywhere and ostriches, many a bit nude since they lost most of their feathers (seeing a nude ostrich is pretty funny.
After the drive through, we got out and walked into the main park. The first thing I did was have my picture taken while holding a baby tiger and feeding it a bottle. OMG! It was too cute and I wish I could have held it all day! I did notice that they had trimmed its nails pretty short.
We watched several shows: orangutans (always funny), dolphins, beluga whales, sea lions, and birds. I opted not to sit through the cowboy stunt show or the spy show. Instead, I wondered over to the giraffe feeding area. There were about two dozen giraffes all vying for treats which you could buy and feed them. Some allowed me to pet them.
All in all, it was a good day. We had a short storm that cooled things down a tad. Now that I'm back at my hotel, my sinuses are wanting to act up and it's making my throat sore. If I get sick, I'm going to be so mad!
After I shower and change, I'll give Layla a ring to see if she wants to go to dinner.
Layla didn't return my text message, so I walked over to the next street and got some grilled squid and coconut juice from a street vendor. While delicious, I knew it wouldn't be enough to last me until morning, so I popped into 7-Eleven for some snacks. Plus I thought I better get something for my throat in case it gets worse.
On the walk back to the hotel, a man started walking beside me and commented on my tattoo. He said he was from India and he continued to talk to me the whole way to my hotel. When I went to go inside, he begged me to stay outside and talk to him. Hmm...I smell a rip off in the making, so I told him I had to go in because I was expecting a phone call. Where was the doorman? The one time it would have been nice to see him and he's gone. Oh well, I made it inside safely and never looked back to see if the man left.
