Attentive readers will remember that I splurged on a trip to Africa late in 2011. Here is another tidbit from that wonderful trip, taken from an elevated position on a very nice Eurocopter ("the Bentley of helicopters"). I was skeptical ahead of time because it was an expensive hour in flight, but it was absolutely worth it. It was the BBC/NatGeo cameraman's view of the delta -- quite a ride.
These two hippos were not amused by the chopper and hustled themselves out of the way. It was something to see: they just blast through the water, pure river horsepower on display. You could wakeboard behind them, if you had the cojones. Which I myself do not.
