I was in a boat on the Nile River when this scene grabbed my attention. Hippos are reputed to kill more people in Africa than any other animal. I was rather worried for the girl’s safety, as she was standing still and the hippo was rapidly approaching. When she finally did notice the massive beast behind her, she gave a barely noticeable shrug and slowly walked away. A different world!
