Dave!I ran out of room for souvenirs of my travels years ago.

So when people ask "What did you bring back from Africa?" I'm not sure what to say, because the only thing I could fit in my bag was a small purple hippo carving (I liked his smile). There's also an elephant placemat, but I only bought it to wrap around the purple hippo to protect him on the way home...

Purple Hippo

Other than that? A T-shirt and a few pins from the Hard Rock Cafe Johannesburg.

Boring, I know.

But I did take a couple thousand photos. Those are the best souvenirs of all, right?

Oh... I almost forgot about that elephant head that I got to hang above my television. I've named him Fluffy.

    I love that little purple hippo. I don’t take a lot of souvenirs from the places I visit. I love having a lot of photos to look back to remember what I did during my trip.
