Hey that is my uncle ZappytheChimp!!



Me a few weeks ago at my daughters SABAH ice show practice. It was a lovely degrees 5 F outside and not too much warmer inside. I had so many layers on I felt like Bibelobis "the Michelin Man"

After 26 years off the ice my first few minutes on the ice were a bit of comic relief to all

Nope, it was just a quick trip from PRC I took with a lady friend on one of my school's planes that I rented, just for sight-seeing around the red rock in SEZ. Been in SEZ a lot of times though, too many to count. It's only a 20 min flight from PRC where I've been living and flying out of for the past 5 years. Landing there can be tricky when it's windy: gotta come in there steeper than you would compared to other places. Also, wind shear isn't probable, it's a given.

I have many more pictures from that flight but I won't post them here. If there's enough interest I'll post them in the trip reports section. That's the flight where this picture came from: (shameless plug)

Feeding Mona monkeys in a small village called Buabeng, outside of Techiman. It is, supposedly, the only place on earth where both the Mona and Colobus monkey live close together and the locals consider them sacred.
