Well, after a couple of days wandering around, Josh and I decided to go on a full blown day outing on Friday - the zoo! Even back in the states we'd heard that this was a very nice zoo, and who's too old for a zoo in the end?
Also for us this was a breakthrough day of learning the bus system! Well ok, that meant asking around, studying the bus system by book and internet, and finally walking 30 minutes to the bus stop we'd hoped would take us to the zoo... but hey we made it!
This was trusty Autobús 62 - our ticket to adventure.
cost: 50 American cents
I was rather charmed by the lady who sat patiently knitting while the bus bounced and flew down the road. She must know were she's going. :)
Josh kindly took this one of me, my hippo shirt, and my hippo friend. (he was kind of the still, stony, quiet type but that's ok)
Blue monkeys on pedestals. Don't go all rushing to your local home decoration store all at once...
This is another one I took, I thought these monkeys were so cute - they were like little old men with beards!
The polar bear! It eventually gave up pawing at its little food cave to come cool off.
I got this one of him swimming right by, we and the people around us were exited!
Hehe, Josh was the better photographer than I that day, and here's the proof.
the gorilla portrait.
