i chatted online with this girl today! she and max have been farming near karkala for about two weeks now, and they are doing well but they are hot. i want to let her tell her own stories, when they get a chance (i.e. a reliable internet connection) to update their blogs, but i have to mention two animal tales she told me. first, the sad one: their neighbor's dog killed a monkey, and they had to bury it. she said, "its mouth was full of eggplant, which it had just been eating."
in happier animal news: "there is an adorable lizard that lives in this house. it's huge and it's so, so cute. i like it so much."
