about a dream: Madagascar!

Monday, July 23, 2012


Anne has a DVD of the movie Madagascar that she got way back when it first came out, when Nina was about 2. It's hystercial. If you've never seen it, it's about 4 animals that escape from the Central Park Zoo and seek out "The Wild." "The Wild" is a big theme in the movie, and they wind up on a boat headed for the Kenya Wildlife Preserve, but fall off the ship and land on Madagascar, where they get to experience The Wild.

Ok, so on Saturday we were at Melk Abbey, waiting for the English guided tour to begin. There was a very, very dark skinned man waiting too, and the girls were wondering if he was American. We asked, and he said no, he was from Africa. Maggie's eyes got big. She walked over to me and whispered in my ear, "Is he from the wild?"

Fortunately no one heard! (I told her that he was probably from a city.)
