National Geographic Documentary

I went with my friend Wilna to my favourite place on the reserve. As I was filmed by some guys for a TV doc on National Geographic , I chased a couple of antilopes ...everyone was so amazed to see me running , interestingly , I always thought a human ran not only slow but also funny, not surprisingly they can't pass the speed of a chicken !

Anyway, it was a great day ... Damian (dad) was here too , always talking to a guy with a stick and what looked like a dead rabbit on top (for the reader , Banzi talk about a microphone) , but i understand Dad (for the reader : Damian) , he has to organise team schedule , interview and scene , make sure about my gym session , my hairdresser , my lunch ... Not sure there will be a sequel to the documentary , as they have come twice but I understood they still have to come once to finish the documentary.
