Nikica Goes On Walkabout

Once upon a time there was a hippo named Nikica who lived in a private zoo in the tiny country of Montenegro, in Southeastern Europe. Every year, during the seasonal floods, Nikica escapes from her cage and goes on walkabout. This year she decided to explore the village of Berislavci, about 15 miles south of the capital city of Podgorica, having heard many fascinating reports of the town.

Nikica is 12 years old and is the only hippo living in Montenegro. Some wonder if she is lonely and is looking for a mate; others have overheard her say that she is a natural introvert and is perfectly content on her own. Nikica swam around the flooded village for nine days, then she returned home to upload her vacation pics to the web and to consult her guide books and plan next year’s trip.
