Feb 25, 2016 – [Thursday] #tbt: Hippo and the sis

Toronto, Canada, taken on April 30, 2006

Hippo was my favourite stuffed toy ever but he mysteriously disappeared some years ago, and no one in my family knew where he’s hiding. I suspect someone threw him away, but no one would admit it. This is a photo of Hippo and Sherry in the lobby. Tell me, do you not see a slight resemblance between the two of them?

Feb 15, 2016 – [Monday] Anything Goes: Hippo

Bordeaux, France, taken on October 28, 2012

I’m bringing back the “Anything Goes!” theme because there are too many interesting photos that don’t fit in the other themes, and because “The Places I Called Home” has ended with my final photo of Glasgow, my current home. For the longest time I’ve had a strange liking for hippos, maybe because of how cute they look when cartoonized. Yes, yes, I know they are one of the most dangerous animals in the world, but how could you resist Mr.Hippo’s invitation for a hug right outside the Hippopotamus restaurant? I was eating at that time but how I wanted to dash over and give him a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig hug!
