We thought something might happen here, like on tv. That gator was watching the monkeys pretty closely. I don't know if it's a gator or crocodile, or if those are monkeys or another primate...
Again, check my Flickr account for more pictures of these cool animals.

Another thing we did when we were in Florida was a visit to a place called "Lion Country Safari." Unlike a zoo, you drive through the habitats of the animals. They come right up to the car, but you're not allowed to roll down your window, so all my pictures come from through a window.
There was only one male lion and he was pretty far away, so I couldn't get any good pictures of him.
There were a few female lions.

I have so many pictures to upload and share, so it's taking me time to put them all up. Here are some pictures from a kirtan program we went to in Florida. It was a really nice evening.
There were a lot of adorable kids at the program.
This adorable brother and sister duo are ready to play anytime.
Sarvjeet Singh Ji and his adorable daughter.

This weekend my brother and I went to Albuquerque to play in the Ultimate Frisbee hat tournament. It's called the Albu-turkey hat tournament, because it's almost Thanksgiving. A hat tournament means you put your name in a hat and teams are selected by pulling names from the hat. I made it on team 4 and my brother made it on team 3.
I have to say my brother and his team played really excellent. They won the tournament!
We played all day Saturday and he played all day today. My team got eliminated with two rounds to go. My brother's team only lost one game. They lost on Saturday to the team that they faced in the finals and beat. The team in the finals was undefeated until they faced team 3 again. It was a close game with a lot of intensity. You wouldn't have believed the athleticism out there. People played really great. The winning catch was a full layout on a second bid!
Meaning the guy ran really fast to try and catch the disk in the end zone, he bid on it (tried to catch it) and only got his fingers on the disk. The disk didn't go down yet, it still floated for another second and he jumped straight out (called a layout) and got the disk with one hand about 6 inches from the ground and landed on his back with the winning catch. That wasn't the only complete layout that game either! It was awesome, but I'm really sore, it's an intense sport with very little rest. I think it's time for me to sleep and later I'll get some pictures up. I hope you all had a great weekend. ULTIMATE!!!!

We slept about three hours before getting up to make the drive there. Mandeep Singh Ji was the hero that morning. He stayed awake even when the rest of us fell asleep.
I think we're going to get into something a little wild.
If I want to keep my camera, I'd probably better put it away now.

A view from the top.
Me and my friend (co-worker) M'hamed. He was on Ramadan until the day we did this hike. So his first day eating and drinking during the day was when we went to the top of the highest mountain in New Mexico.
I'm pointing to the top of Wheeler Peak. We were almost there at this point.
These are some views from near the top. Above is the horse shoe lake (it's a lot bigger than it looks in this picture. It's really far away).
All the orange spread out throughout these pictures are aspen trees that have changed in the fall time.
