Post hippo-attack

Marty’s photo of the day #2949: When Deb and I were canoeing down the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, a hippo bit through our canoe, lifted us high into the air and threw us onto a muddy riverbank.

In the meantime, here’s a photo taken just minutes after the attack that I’ve never shared before. Both of us were laughing.
