Some stunning pictures were taken by Andy Rouse in Rwanda suggesting that gorillas can get drunk on bamboo juice. The Daily Mail reports: "Sitting back in the foliage as if it was a cocktail bar, the mountain gorillas had been gorging on alcoholic sap from fresh bamboo shoots and were looking distinctly the worse for wear. Some were propping up the bar with a bleary air, while others staggered to their feet obviously hoping the mountain police would not ask them to walk in a straight line." The captures under the beautiful pictures are hilarious, e.g. for this picture the capture reads: "Who are you looking at? A fighting drunk Kwitondo takes offence when he's reminded that it's his round."
20 of the most ridiculous complaints made by holidaymakers to their travel agent. Not surprisingly, I think the first one is the most interesting: A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a waterhole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate".
High time to take a break now and go on a well-deserved safari!
