Photo of the Week: Safari Browser

Author: John Nagy ’00M.A.


Managing editor John Nagy ’00M.A., on assignment in Uganda, was on the veranda at Pakuba Safari Lodge in Murchison Falls National Park with Notre Dame theologian Father Emmanuel Katongole and Don Stelluto, executive director of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. Their guide, Eddy Ocaya Bosmick, said, “Come and see my brother.” Up the driveway came an elephant, browsing for palm fruits that had fallen from the trees. “The elephant,” John reports, “took no interest in any of us, finished his snack, turned an about face and then scratched his backside on the trunk of a palm tree,” and walked away. But not before pausing long enough for a selfie.
