lindsay hugs all the animals no. 5 . lamb

August 13, 2012 separator Life

Fact about me: I have a borderline psychotic  mild obsession with animals. I love them. Pretty much all of them. I like to think they love me back, so I’m on a quest to hug them. Pretty much all of them.

Interesting fact about me: I saved up my whole senior year of college and then bought a one-way ticket to Guatemala, departing right after graduation. I backpacked all the way down to Argentina with a couple girlfriends – nine countries in three months.
And I hugged a Peruvian lamb. 
This picture is in Cusco, Peru. It was bitterly cold. Andrei came along on this leg of the journey for a visit, and I’m pretty sure I’m wearing all his clothes here. I’m also pretty sure this little girl thought I might not give back her lamb. Which might not have been that far from the truth…
Additional Animal Hugs


  1. I love this series of posts more than any other series of any other posts. Also, this weekend we spotted a sheep travelling down the road in a dog crate in the back of a pickup on his way to the state fair. He was baa-ing the whole time. Adorable.

  2. That is so cool! When I saw the picture, I jumped because I saw the little girl and recognized the traditional dress because I was just in Peru! Your visit must have been very special because I know it was a very special time for me, too! 🙂

  3. In the picture, it looks like you achieved your goal and is the happiest person on the earth!

    19 Countries = a long trip!!
