The Zoo Too!

One thing that Aura forgot to mention was our day a the zoo before we went off to the tango show. Although I would have liked to sleep all day, my girlfriend decided we should do something with the day, so we walked to the zoo with our friend Ron.

We spent the day seeing bears, reptiles, lions, muskrats, and ducks. Aura bought a bag of food to feed the animals and insisted on speeking to the animals in english. I told her that these were spanish speeking animals, but she didn't listen to me.

All and all, it was a fun day at the zoo and a good vocabulary exersice for names of animals. The highlight of the day was probably the time at the baboon cage. When Aura offered them food, some of them crawled up the side of the cage and held out their hands. The would catch the food when you trew it to them, and Ron was daring enough to crawl over the barrier and hand one of the monkeys a treat. The monkey was cool with Ron until he tried to shake it's hand, then there was a lot of shrieking (and a few tense moments were poo-flinging was a definate possiblity).
