They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But this photo of a grown man meeting an alpaca says just one thing: pure joy.
Twitter use Alexandria Neonakis (also known as @Beavs) recently posted a conversation she had with her dad. Her dad was in Peru on a trip, and he stopped to meet some alpacas while he was there. No one was prepared for the level of excitement that followed. Alexandria posted the following texts from Dad to Twitter with the caption, “My dad is in Peru and having a meltdown over alpacas”
Along with the adorable text messages above, Alexandria’s dad included a picture with his new alpaca friend… and it’s the most joyful thing you’ll see all day:
Just look at that face.
After a day with the alpacas, Dad was ready to take his new friends home with him!
@nataliehall natalie he’s at the “i’m bringing some home” stage of it right now. my facebook messenger is 100% dad losing it over alpacas.

“What a pure soul,” wrote one Twitter user.

The people of Peru were especially delighted, pleased to see him having such a great time in their country!
Alexandria called the response from strangers around the globe “surreal.” Dad apparently thinks its hilarious.
I woke up to 33k people liking my dad and messages of love for him in multiple languages. This is very surreal. He thinks it’s hilarious

Alexandria said her phone has been blowing up with Twitter notifications, but says it’s worth it seeing her dad get some attention. “I’m glad he’s getting the widespread love he deserves.”
