Likolopata


At about the same time we returned to the Drakensbergs, some Italian friends asked us to watch their baby tortoises, or likolopata (dee-KOHL-oh-pah-tah), for them while they were away.  They were so cute I had to share.  Besides, there was something restorative about sitting out in the yard with them every day so they could get some sun.  (They tended not to move at all except when in direct sunlight.)

They have since returned to our friends, where I hope they are still getting the sun they crave...
