Keep your friend close and your enemies closer…except when they have cameras.

As I said in a previous post I am too lazy to link, these two are always smiling and wearing hats. I don’t know which of these two features is more ridiculous (just kidding…I know which).

Ok, so what is there to do at the Etosha National Park besides chilling at the pool, spending time at the 8USD-an-hour-internet-cafe and buying drinks/snacks ?

(a) Watching animals

(b) Watching animals

(c) Watching animals

I still cannot comprehend Gabbitch’s obsession with animal penises. Gabbitch took approximately a 100 cliches of animal penises, erected or not. Maybe she is interested in science. Maybe she is an aspiring photographer. Maybe she has motives to complain home and needs evidence. Or maybe she just likes nature. In any case, these pictures are… unique.
