Happy Trails…Happy the Hippo! Seems the National Zoo’s only Nile hippo will be relocating to Milwaukee. There he will make new “friends” with female hippos Puddles and Patty. The Milwaukee zoo is expanding its hippo exhibit in the near future. I guess Happy felt like he deserved more after getting attention from celebrities. At least we’ve still got various other animal babies.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
