What do tourists to Omaha, Nebraska do?
Hit up the college world series spots, hang out at their famous zoo, and (for us) soak up some pioneer history.
And let me say, the zoo was as rewarding as heaping spoonfuls of chocolate ice-cream on a hot day.
The team that put the extra-thick glass in the gorilla house are on the top of my Christmas card list, because when that gorilla attacked the glass with his fist, I was more terrified than the 3-year old in front of me.
Also, if the Omaha zoo staff start looking for the person that threw the quarter into the crocodile swamp, you never read this.
(That could be a confession, could not be. I’m mysterious like that. But if a croc did die from quarter consumption, I send my condolences. Florida has more to offer, though.)
Which wraps up my Nebraska trip.
