Spring Break 2010, Woooo!

This past March, I was sent by Vice to cover spring break in Cancun. The combination of lowered inhibitions, keg stands, board shorts, tribal tats, and hair extensions should have made for HILARIOUS photos, but unfortunately everything went wrong.

Midvisit, I remembered the incident at the San Francisco Zoo a few years ago where a tiger leaped out of its enclosure and mauled someone to death. I asked Pepe about this. After thinking about it for a minute, he told me, “If they wanted to get out, they’d have gotten out by now. They’re happy here.” OK, Pepe.

ΔΙΑΦΗΜΙΣΗ

I can safely say this is the most scared I’ve ever been. The leash is just a formality, really—if this panther had wanted to eat my face off, I’m pretty sure there’s nothing Pepe could have done about it.

This was the only enclosure Pepe had completed at his zoo. He hopes they’ll all be this awesome soon.

This is two of the tigers doing it. Pepe got all excited by this and started yelling things like, “Hey man, you gotta buy her a martini first!”

SCENES FROM SPRING BREAK

With the exception of a couple of lizards and some mosquitoes, this was the only other animal I saw while I was in Cancun. He was outside one of the hotels being forced to pose for pictures with tourists. I also just saw a picture online of this very same chimp with Tila Tequila. Poor guy.

SCENES FROM SPRING BREAK

I’m not usually one to namedrop, but this is too major not to share. This picture was taken while I was playing beer pong against Derek from The Real World: Cancun (he’s the one with foil on his head). SHOWBIZ!
