As promised, here are my 'good' photos from our day at the zoo. Still not feeling great and hating that I have to go back to work tomorrow. I literally haven't unpacked my bags from my trip, at least I know I bought new work clothes in the Boxing Day Sales so I will just go and find some of them to wear tomorrow and worry about the mess later...Oh and to make myself feel better, right now I have my feet soaking in a tub of warm water. Giving myself a pedicure is a lot more important than unpacking, right?
Let me introduce you to Stripes. At least I'm sure that's his name.
And a few members of Stripes' family. The Zebras were one of my favourites, I think mostly because I loved the purple flowers in their paddock, made them very picturesque.
A few White Rhinos, interestingly not called 'White' because they are white but because it is a mistranslation of the Dutch word 'wijd' for wide, and refers to their square upper lip.
This is a Black Rhino only called so to distinguish it from the White Rhino, they're actually very similar in colour and the biggest difference is in their upper lips (this one is more hooked lipped if you care).
I have lots of ideas for other posts now, I think I should post about past trips I have been on. Too many photos stored on my computer that I really should share.
Hope you enjoy them :-)
