... super authentic. They even had the 'buy a drink get a free tapas' deal, which they did provide. The 'free tapas' which is never something you get to pick involved octopus, which I ate (I had some octopus on the camino as well).

At our lunch stop we were fortunate enough to see a a whale (probably a Southern Right Whale) and a seal snatch a fish from a fisherman on his boat while he was cleaning his catch!

... us on our quick cultural emersion into the life of the Alpha Male Buffalo. We then got way too close to the entire rhino herd and continued our search for the elephants and a giraffe, both unsuccessful. We made a quick stop at the lion’s den, which went without any incidence and then traveled past some hippos, and on to the rehab area.
