Greetings from Kenya! I've been posting up at the Mara Safari Club for the last couple of days and I must say it has been a blast! Kenya is really a photographers dream for sure. I never imagined how great it is out here. The wildlife here is pretty amazing. So among my many tasks as a photographer out here in the brush, I was also commissioned by non-other than Todd of Toddland to test a pair of his infamous "greatest pants in the universe" . You see, before a product gets out in the market one must go through rigorous tests to prove that it is safe for the environment and now we can safely say that The Greatest Pants in the Universe are rhino friendly. We were a bit concerned because a customer had reported to us that he had worn the pants while meeting up with some creature known as a "Spearmint Rhino" and his encounter did not seem to go that well. So we took it upon our selves to see what the problem was. I am unfortunately Todd and I are no zoologist so there was no real quick answer for this one, so I took it upon myself to see this Spearmint Rhino for myself. Searching every Zoo in the vicinity I turned up with nothing. So off to Kenya I went to discover that they did not have rhinos of spearmint either, so I took this as a sign to throw in the towel on this one, because the rhinos I did encounter didn't just seem the like the "greatest pants in the universe", they loved them!
