Wednesday we went shopping again, surprise, surprise! The we walked around town until lunch, we ate at L in M Taste of Mozambique, I didn’t realize Mozambique had such spicy food. Or that wine is not a good thing to cool off a hot mouth. It was still great though.
After lunch we went to see the monkeys! They were so cute. They were also really hard to photograph because they moved so much, but I’ve included some pictures anyway.
After we met the monkeys we met the kitties. Maybe that the wrong word for some of them, like the cheetah and leopard, but it fits well for some of the others. I didn’t realize how small wild cats could be, one was no bigger than a full grown house cat. The leopard however? Scary. It was dinner time (really?!) when we go to see him. We got to watch him eat, and attack a guy that was leaning on the fence. No joke, it jumped on the fence and I don’t know if I’ve seen a grown man move that fast in a while. The guide just shook his head and said, “I told you so.” Soon after that he decided to take us in the fenced in area with some baby cheetahs, it was really nervous making because we were standing in the middle of the cage while they were allowed to roam free. Soon they started wrestling and Molly and I started to inch toward the door, we looked at each other and realized we were thinking the same thing. We were not about to get eaten by anything less than a full grown cheetah. What kind of story would that be if we were eaten by a baby cheetah?
After a little bit of rest Mama took us out for our last Garden Route dinner, at Enrico’s and Italian restaurant right on the ocean.
Thursday we headed home, back to stellies! Mama couldn’t resist making a stop on the way home though, she felt we couldn’t leave Africa without making paper. Out of elephant poo?! It wasn’t that gross though, I imagined us smooshing elephant dung into sheets of paper. Turns out the poo is sanitized, dissolved with shredded computer paper, then they just dip trays into the mixture and voilà! You have elephant poo paper. Then we were off, on our way back to the real world (well not really), homework and papers.
