auntie Hippo

Seeing the hippo's and elephants from a boat in the water is truly magnificent! With the hippo I still feel a bit quilty of breaking a porcelain one from my housemate in Delft. Hopefully I will find one to replace the original.

Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Everybody look left, Everybody look right, Everywhere you look, I'm Standing in the spotlight!

No one saying do this,
No one saying be there
No one saying stop that
No one saying see here
Free to run around all day
Free to do it all my way
(Lion King)

can you feel the african sunrise & sunset

The sweet caress of twilight
There's magic everywhere
And with all this romantic atmosphere
Holiday's in the air!
(Lion King)

drink (a toast to the) sun

Some say you should try to be rich man
some they say you should be number one
But my wealth will be inside
and grow under the sun

in the neigborhood, in the neighborhood

Well the eggs chase the bacon,
Round the fryin' pan
And the whinin' dog pidgeons
By the steeple bell rope
And the dogs tipped the garbage pails
Over last night
And there's always construction work
Bothering you
In the neighborhood
