"But you had music playing during the hippopotamus hunt!"
I said "Yes."
I felt a bit guilty.
Just like in a good old western I'd wanted to shore up the dramatic moments with music.
But at least I'd used traditional hunting music.
They said, "That's true but a hippo has very good ears. Music would scare it off."
