Here are some photos from our last days in South Africa. After baseball in Durban and and saying goodbye to Thanda, we rented a car and drove north to Hluhluwe National Park, a game reserve several hours north of Durban. We spent a day there, two nights, and then headed back to Durban to catch our flight back to Europe. ***Don't forget to check page 2 of this blog for the crocodile pictures!!!! You'll see a real crocodile hunter who is missing four fingers he lost during his crocodile adventures!!!
Last summer I was playing baseball in Lithuania, coaching in Moscow, hitching through Bavaria, and working construction in the South of France. Who knows what this summer will bring.

zebrasduring the heat of the day, all of the zebras seemed to couple up and just sort of stand like this. In pairs, nuzzling. kind of cute.
no fearthe zebras, of all the animals, seemed to be the least phased by our car. They had no problem walking right by the car, in fact often we had to wait for zebras who were in no hurry to get out of the road.
Bush babiesAt the hostel where we stayed for two nights they would set out a plate of fruit every night, and like magic these animals would come down from the tree canopy to eat dinner. They are called 'bush babies.' They are so cute! Though I don't know that I would want to come too close!
