A Wonderful Trip to the Zoo

We started the day with a bath for Dan-Dan. As the picture illustrates, she's not a bath person. Perhaps she'll grow into it. :)

We left at 8:30am on about a 45 minute bus ride to the south side of Guangzhou to visit the Guangzhou Safari Park.

The Guangzhou Zoo is, by far, the best zoo I can remember visiting. It is well manicured, has high shade areas, dense foliage and an abundance of all types of animals. And not just one or two like many zoos in the States. There were at least 5 Rhino, 10-15 tigers and lions, 10 bears, 10 pandas and a huge number of giraffe, wilde beasts, reebok, zebra, etc... In addition, most of the animals weren't in small enclosed areas. They were in areas reworked to mimic their home terrains. We highly advise anyone going to Guangzhou to visit this fine zoo. Here are just a few pics from the day. I've included many more in the image library that you can link to above.

After our return from the Zoo, we went to the electronics market and I purchased the following items, all for less than $10/each: 4GB SD cards, 1GB MP3 Players, laptop speakers.

Tomorrow we head to a Buddhist Temple for a blessing of our children.
