Friday, December 21:  The world is full of surprises, and i have run across many of them in my travels.  The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is surprise: There was talk of some sort of apocalypse today, but so far, so good. Big surprise! In honor of the world continuing, show me some surprises! If you’re at a loss what to share, I bet many of you have surprises hidden under a tree or in a closet somewhere.

I was surprised to come upon this strange-looking prehistoric-like creature strutting his stuff along the shores of Lake Langano in Ethiopia.

It was quite a surprise to find I could stick to a wall like a piece of Velcro in the Trick Art Museum in Daegu, South Korea.

surprise, surprise!  I can stick to the wall like Velcro!

And yummy!  Isn’t it a wonderful surprise when someone serves up a head on a platter?

Finally, it was a fun surprise to come upon this Omani vegetable vendor taking a snooze in the middle of his vegetables at Nizwa souq.
