AND THEN HE MET THE KANGAROOS...



What would be a visit to Australia, even "only" on a business trip, and only to a tiny part of this large continent, without making the acquaintance of that funny animal with the powerful tail and hind legs, and the, proportional, tiny front legs. And, oh yes, a pocket for the babies at the females! How gorgeous!





Now these encounters can sometimes end painful for the human onlooker, but my husband told me that he and the big guy checked each other out, and that there was a mutual feeling of peace. The distance to him was about five meters, and obviously he did not feel any danger for his gang. 





My husband said that he was so excited that goosebumps appeared on his arms! :-)
