BigBlogExchange Begins Friday!
Well, Friday is the big day. I will be beginning my new adventure with Hostelling International’s BigBlogExchange and flying off to Madrid, Spain. In light of this exchange, I was recently given a few cool t-shirts to take with me on the exchange to promote the cause. Therefore, today I decided that I would go take some pictures with me in the shirts before I was leaving. I wanted to show you all what the t-shirts would look like and fill you in on a few details.
As I concluded those pictures, I was thinking of a way to make my pictures more local to show the world a bit of Louisiana. Boy did I ever. I never expected that an alligator would become so involved. I headed over to a local swamp and was taking some pictures. Then an alligator ate my t-shirt. True story. I couldn’t make this up. The proof is here:
So how did it happen? In the first picture you will notice the t-shirt on a brick wall, and an alligator in the background. I knew that it was there and wanted to include him in the picture. Just not that much. Apparently, the t-shirt was hanging low enough over the water that the alligator decided that it was food. So he jumped up and pulled the shirt into the water. I am no stranger to alligators so I just shrugged this off, but it made me remember that we should respect nature. Tip of the day: Alligators can be aggressive if they want.
Well, at the end of the day, I got my shirt back from the alligator. I took this as a good sign for the many adventures that this shirt would undergo. So, much for debunking stereotypes of Louisiana.
On another hand, check out what is new at BackpackingDiplomacy.com. I recently began making t-shirts for the site as well as completed my business cards. If you are interested in a t-shirt please let me know via email. I will not likely finish the t-shirts now, but if I get enough requests, I will put in an order and ship them out.
