Jennifer Egan's "Safari" (short story, non-genre, free)

Illustration accompanying the online copy at The New Yorker of the short story Safari by Jennifer EganThis is one of those stories I shouldn't have liked but ended up liking.

It's about a group of (US?) tourists in Africa - a few events, & interactions among the people. Story is from the point of view of a family that is part of the group.

Kind of ... less colorful version of Hindi movie "Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd" (at IMDB: movie details; at YouTube: my favorite music video from the movie).

Fact sheet.
