Day two at Disney: animal kingdom and sea world.

It is funny how the vacation impulse can become as dangerous as an all you can eat sushi bar.

Today we braved another day with heat indexes in the 100s to go to the animal kingdom. The highs were "dinosaur" and the "kilimanjaro safari". My personal low was the "everest" ride with the backwards roller coaster and the vertigo fueled nausea it produced in me. Lunch was at an expensive, forgettable Quasi-Indian restaurant, the most memorable part of lunch was the air-conditioning.

Still, the experience was amazing. Disney is mesmerizing, it is hard to take it all in.

That evening with met up with Ed and Rita who had a special dinner and a show at sea world. We had a special dinner overlooking the huge shark tank, and then saw "shamu:rocks" which was extremely hot and mercifully short. Pj amazed us with his ability to recognize and identify sharks on sight. He spent most of dinner staring off onto the tank and taking pictures.

Today, we head off to Hollywood studios for more disney excitement. The entire week has heat indexes in the 105-110 range and a crowd rated as 9/10 according to a Disney info site. This vacationing is hard work!
