First Things First.... Lunch And Disneyland

Valentines Day 2014
A romantic way to start the day!

Did You Know? - Tibetan cuisine includes the culinary traditions and practices of Tibet and its peoples, many of whom have found refuge in India and Nepal. It reflects the Tibetan landscape of mountains and plateaus and includes influences from neighbors (including China, India and Nepal). It is known for its use of noodles, goat, yak, mutton, dumplings, Tibetan cheeses (often from yak or goat milk), butter (also from animals adapted to the Tibetan climate) and soups.

We arrived at Disneyland at 3:00 after a drink at Catal's Uva Bar

Valentines Day 2014
First place we go is a leisurely cruise through the great rivers of the United States

Did You Know? - The island that is surrounded by the Rivers of America in Frontierland was left almost completely bare when Disneyland first opened in 1955.

Time and money had both run out, forcing Walt Disney to leave it unfinished; but on the shores of this once barren isle, the following summer Disney would unveil what is perhaps the most distinctive outdoor playground ever conceived, the Tom Sawyer's Island.

To gain access to the island, explorers board a log raft to carry them across the river. Here they will find a network of caves, rocks, bridges, and secret hideouts, including Tom and Huck's treehouse, Injun Joe's Cave, Harper's Mill, and Castle Rock, so named because of its natural resemblance to a fortress tower.

For more hearty adventurers, there is a hanging suspension bridge, a pontoon barrel bridge, and a seesaw and spinning merry-go-round fashioned from rocks.

Growl....

Did You Know? - Interesting Facts about Hippopotamus are as follows:

Fact 1 - Definition: The hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) or hippo is a large, amphibious, herbivorous mammal inhabiting the rivers of Africa

Fact 2 - The hippopotamus is allied to the pigs and hogs, and has a very thick, naked skin, a thick and square head, a very large muzzle, small eyes and ears, thick and heavy body and short legs

Recent DNA evidence suggests that the hippopotamus is more closely related to cetaceans - Whales and Dolphins

Fact 3 - The hippopotamus spends most of the day living in water, but comes on to land at night to feed

Fact 4 - Only the Rhinoceros and Elephants are larger than the hippopotamus

Fact 5 - The word "Hippopotamus" is of Greek origin from the word meaning "river horse"

No swimming.... Duh!

Did You Know? - Piranha have a reputation as ferocious predators that hunt their prey in schools. Recent research, however, which "started off with the premise that they school as a means of cooperative hunting", discovered that they are timid fish that schooled for protection from their own predators, such as cormorants, caimans, and dolphins. Piranhas are "basically like regular fish with large teeth".

Did You Know? - The carat is a unit of mass equal to 200 mg (0.2 g; 0.007055 oz) and is used for measuring gemstones and pearls. The current definition, sometimes known as the metric carat, was adopted in 1907 at the Fourth General Conference on Weights and Measures, and soon afterwards in many countries around the world. The carat is divisible into one hundred points of two milligrams each.
