I'd never seen swans before in real life. Today we went for a walk around a water resevoir and as we began our walk we came across this sight...

I was a bit amazed at what large feet they have.

The papa swan was a bit agressive and would chase after runners and dogs if they got too close to the mama and the babes. It was amusing to watch. We continued down the path and soon crossed a doberman pinscer headed back in the direction of the swans and we wondered what that encounter might be like.

Here are a few other shots from our walk today...

Hard to imagine that in just a few short days we will be leaving this beautiful place and headed back to our "big sand box" as Donnie likes to call it. Unfortunately, though, we're still not cleared to go back up North and so we will be stuck in Niamey for a bit...hopefully not for too long as it gets expensive to stay there and as much as I hate to leave the western world behind, once we get back to Niger we will be anxious to be home again.
