once again, misfortune has humped my leg. [userpic]

OH, HELLO.

i am back from africa (/london/edinburgh/berlin)!! this will be a post about my trip, kind of, because i get bored of my own stories quite easily.

basically i think i will just post some pictures.

I MISSED YOU ALL and it's super good to be back in america because i also missed ice and gay people and good coffee and fanfiction and toilet paper and hot showers and clean clothes. and mattresses.

tame cheetahs at cheetah park! the farmer who owns this place takes in cheetahs because they're considered pests to local farmers. these guys are just big cats. they purr (REALLY LOUDLY) and give you sandpapery kisses.

this is hanna, one of the girls on the trip, and some adorable himba kids.
IMG_0721
ladies of the himba tribe of southern namibia and their crazyawesome farscape hair. they paint themselves with red ocher and they look GORGEOUS, like they're photoshopped. also, they bathe in smoke instead of water. also also, the women are kind of sad because their tribe is extremely sexist. but what else is new, i guess.

bushman paintings in namibia. this is the famous 'white lady' who is neither white nor a lady, funnily enough...

beautiful table mountain and our hostel in cape town, south africa.

welp that's as many pictures as i can bother putting up right now. it was two and a half months of incredible. i wish i had some pictures of the stars, though! some of my favorite nights were spent tracing scorpio and the southern cross whilst drinking amarula hot chocolates. OH WELL. this trip was just an utter blessing.

NOW I NEED TO FIND A REAL JOB AND "BE AN ADULT", LOL

L O L

whatever i am going to go find some candy and look at more pictures of amanda tapping. also guess what guys it's FALLTIME AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS? DO YOU? it means i'm really, really, really happy. :D THE END.

I AM BACK

thank you darling! omg i missed amanda's boobs so much sob sob. also i missed you.

WOW SCREECHING, the tame cheetahs!!! My mom wanted to know about the kid we borrowed Netflix from, lolol, so I mentioned that you were on an African safari and she was like, "A mission trip?" and I was like, "No... just a trip." And she was like, "Why?????" So I guess she thinks Africa is just, like. Land of malaria and starving children. whoops.

ugh, this is all SO COOL.

TAME CHEETAHS, CHRISTINE. it was the best day ever.

heeeeeeeeee i love that you still borrow my netflix. and yeah dude i just went to a job interview today and the guy was like 'oh, so it was a humanitarian trip?' and i was just like....no....

most people think africa is the land of malaria and starving children. that's only a tiny part of it though. africaaaaaaa.

<33

Screaming about the baby lion tbh because I am a Leo and Iions are my favourite ever in the whole world. BUT YAY YOU ARE BACK even though I am leaving on Saturday to go to Europe

RIGHT RIGHT so many points to gryffindor. i almost saw the leo constellation! but then i didn't :( we don't have that one in the northern hemisphere.

OMG ENJOY THE EUROPE, MY FRIEND. ENJOY IT. excited for you!!

That yawning cheetah picture needs to be a meme. Like: fastest animal in the world... Always napping.

FASTEST CAT IN THE WORLD... ACTS LIKE A DOPEY DOG

because they do.

<3

You were gone 2 and a half months? Holy shit time moves SO FAST, it feels like you left yesterday!

Ugh Edinburgh is so pretty. Gorgeous.

AHHHHHH LION CUBS AND CHEETAH'S!!!!!!!!!!!!! Soooooo jealous! And of the rest of the trip too, obviously, but mainly the CRAZY CUTE AWESOME CATS.

I WAS I WAS time, man, i don't know.

edinburgh was my favorite city of the trip. i mean, africa was INSANE but edinburgh kind of has my heart.

RIGHT!! NOT ONLY LIONS BUT CHEETAHS TOO. BABY ONES. and we saw a wild leopard in etosha! UP CLOSE. didn't get a picture of that though, sadly.

Edinburgh is utterly beautiful and wonderful and I love it. I want to go back, and I was only there in June!

I HAVE FEELINGS ABOUT THIS POST.
