Yes, the zebra thing was very cool, but on the next 2 trips through later in the week, there were no zebras at all. Not even one. Very weird since the time that we saw them it was really great. I didn't realize that they are giving up on the idea...?

Recovery is going better than last time. It's been about 2.5 weeks since the surgery and the pain is still there, but tolerable with Tylenol or Aleve. My biggest problem is that I'm still exhausted all the time and I have NO stamina. I went back to work full time last Monday and it takes all of my strength to make it through the day. Then I come home and crash for the rest of the day. Each day I get a little stronger but it will probably be a few more weeks until I'm feeling more normal. I have to say that this time was pretty bad when they took all the stuff out of my nose. I had packing up there this time (I didn't last time) and that was about the most miserable thing I've had to live through in a long time. Getting the stitches & splints out a few days later felt like a piece of cake, in comparison. The other thing is that I didn't have enough cartilage left in my nose b/c of the last surgery, so they had to take some from my ear and put it in my nose. Let me tell you, my ear hurt MORE than my nose for about a week. I still can't sleep on it, but it's getting better too. The doctor told Todd that I shouldn't have to have any more surgeries, and I hope he's right. Thanks for sympathizing, since I know that you know exactly what I'm going through.

Apparently they didn't play nice with the other animals, or even each other. Not really sure, they kept it pretty hush hush.

Oh Alison, that sounds awful!!!!!!!!! I was amazed how draining that surgery was, you poor thing. I hope you can get some energy back soon. Your poor ear! I really hope this is it for you, I know it will take time to see how much it's helped or not but I pray it really has done the trick.

Sleeping Tigers and Drowned Rats

After our amazing safari, we wandered towards Asia and some rapids, and found this lovely bird tempting us to visit the Flights of Wonder Show





We were tempted but...needed a bio break more than anything, coffees and milks having got up with everyone on our journey



In years past, we have ended our safari's with a journey down the Pagani Trail. Today we needed to go somewhere different, somewhere, somehow, we had managed to miss every trip.





This gentleman welcomed us in







Should we be scared?



That doesn’t look like a Tiger

































Darn bats, no one wanted to open their wings all the way. Rats.

Continued in next post

Continued from Previous















Pretty bird&moving too fast to get a good picture. Wah!











I really dont know where weve been other than to say it really is a travesty that wed never made it down the Maharaja Jungle Trek. It was so wonderful! And while I do like the Pagani trail, it was a great change of pace and so nice to experience something truly new to all of us.

Where to?





Silly question!









Better put the camera away...

It took us a few visits to get to Maharajah, too - not sure why I think you just miss the signs while walking by, and then realize later that you didn't see the tigers.

I think I hear a Yehti roaring!

Oh, how I would love to be in Animal Kingdom on this 15th Anniversary day! We are hoping to be there for the 20th.

Thanks for the great pictures. The owl pictures are fantastic! Tigers are beautiful creatures. You were fortunate to have a tiger roaming around. Quite often, they are all snoozing.

Sigh... I think I'm going to have to break down and see the Flights of Wonder Show... I love owls...

Was that a komodo dragon? (I have a little man who'd love to see that...

That wasn't really your first time on the Maharaja Jungle Trail was it? It's stunning... it's actually one of my favorite things in AK... super atmospheric...

you got some great photos... it's too bad the tigers weren't being cooperative... (I've seen some people bang on the windows to try to make them move... like they're animatronic or something...)

Everest coming up... Love some Everest...

I think it took us a couple of visits to AK before we made it on the Maharajah Jungle Trek also. I think the first time we just didn't realize there was anything there, and the second time it was closed for some reason, maybe rain or something. But now I've been on it two or three times. It's a nice trail, I'm glad you folks were able to get there.

I've never seen the komodo dragon all up for a head-on shot like that.

I'm glad you found some active tigers. I was afraid they were all going to be sleeping, from your first few pictures.

So, who got doused on your trip down the Kali River rapids?

Hmmm... try sitting through a show with a full bladder, or fear the wrath of what looks like a very angry owl. I think you made the right choice.

Great picture of the owl! Don't you just love the Flights of Wonder show.

And I absolutely love that trail. I think its hard to handle in the heat of summer, but the tiger didn't seem to mind. Holy mega picture update. You got tons of great shots.

Why do I get the feeling that K is going to come off that ride soaked?

Nice trek- First time down that way Huh? Glad you made it. It really is a beautiful area. Almost makes up for the fact the tigers are usually snoozing.

I am going to guess that K gets soaked too.
