Today we woke up around 5:30 and gathered the whole crew for our morning safari. We took a van on an 80 minute drive which ended up being more like an hour and a half of beautiful amazing scenery, we finally arrived at a big 5 game safari park. The whole group went in had an amazing breakfast of all sorts of variety of meals to choose from, everybody seemed very content with what they had to eat for breakfast. We later gathered up and climbed up on this big green tractor car and started our safari through the park. In the beginning we saw the two elephants that the park had we kept running into them everywhere we went. Later we saw some ostriches and a couple water buffalos as well as baboons, giraffes, zebras and one of my personal favorites just because of the name a zonkie, half zebra half donkey. We were also fortunate enough to see a white rhino which I was very happy to see personally we also ventured off a little bit in to the back part of the park where their was a big natural river pool and a bunch of the crew went in and said it was amazing.
After that we headed back to the lunch house where we had a lunch that was better than the breakfast we had in the morning. After lunch we headed back to our boat that we all love Argo some of the people on the boat had to go get passport photos for the Brazil visa after some of the people arrived from getting the photos Dan and Kevin told us that we where going to turn the boat around. Of course everybody got very exited so we all went to work and did what we where told and turned the boat around successfully, and all learned a little bit. I can tell you that everybody was jumping up and down with excitement. When we had successfully turned the boat around we did the thing Chris introduced to us called the squeeze. The topic of the squeeze today was what was your first impression of Argo when you saw her? When everyone finished giving the little tale we all began the feast of dinner. The chefs did very well tonight in my opinion. After dinner clean up occurs and is currently going on. The day was great and I have a feeling they will only get better and better.
