A Trip to the Munich Zoo

I've never been much of a zoo-goer; I always feel sorry for the animals in their cages. However, our children get very excited by giraffes, elephants, zebras and the like, so we made our second trip to the Munich zoo (in two years) this week.



There were tall giraffes eating grass out of wire baskets





tropical turtles that live to be 150 years old



and peacocks parading majestically in the green landscape.




We saw mama apes with their babies in tow



and sometimes it was hard to tell who was watching who.





After all that excitement, our two girls fell asleep for a nap



but woke up in time for an afternoon ice cream



and giggled as they met a charming family of ducks.
