We had to wake up very early – 4h 30 am – to be able to enter Yala reserve as soon as possible

At the reserve entrance - lots of noise because there was no light at all.

Jeep Joy Ride

a poem by Colby Nargang and Haley Mary Arzab

This is going to be a bumpy ride.
Across the mud, we glide.
This ain't no slip and slide.
Goin' on a jeep joy ride.

Driving through the park.
It's getting to be after dark.
Gun the motor. Step on the gas.
What are you waiting for? This jeep can go fast.

The backseat takes the bumps worse than the front, they say.
What does it matter? There is joy in the ride, anyway.

Don't ask me if I'm scared.
You're probably more freaked out than me,
as with your shoulder, the ride to you isn't as fare.

Go out on the highway. It's late at night.
Though the smog in the city doesn't allow for the stars to shine too bright.

Goin' up the hills. Hands off the wheel.
The jeep pretty much drives itself, no big deal.

Next posts I would say. Unfortunately it did rain a lot and we didn't see what we would like to see. But there are some surprises anyway. smile

Looks like we have something in common, many a days I woke up at 4:30 in the last 30 days, to catch a flight to the next location. Teresa doesn't seem to mind the cold 😉

Don't you complain
jeeping in the rain;
no dark noisy pains,
no big, bright gains;
Look! Teresa's set to take on all terrains oncoming automobile
