Viral videos & African alcohol

Remember the viral Youtube video on the animals in Africa who eat fermenting fruit and become "drunk?"
They are eating a fruit called marula.  It's amusing and cute to watch the animals stumble about.

On my most recent trip I went to Arizona.  I visited a dear CouchSurfing friend, Amanda.  We had a grand time with each other.  Small world - a mutual CS friend, Lady Ri, lives in Africa.  She came to the US.  And she brought a bottle of amarula, a liquer made from the marula fruit.

And there I sat in Amanda's living room, sipping a deliciously sweet treat akin to... perhaps Bailey's.  We laughed, toasted to Ri, and enjoyed life together.
