A VISIT TO TORONTO ZOO

On the third day of the Toronto trip, the time came for a visit to the zoo. It was a large area and the place was divided into sections according to different continents. We spent more than five hours there, admiring the animals on display. There were a lot of people, mainly kids going on a school trip and the day was cloudy but cold - to be inside the indoor exhibition which was warmer had made me feel at home.

I have adopted a new hobby: hunting butterflies. This was also what I did when I was in one of the museums in Washington DC last week.

It was definitely another exciting trip to the zoo. In fact I will not hesitate to visit more zoos in the future.

NOTE:
(i) There will be video postings of the visit later.
(ii) My blog posting of the trip will not be in time sequence but rather in random order.
(iii) I am having problem as the pictures uploaded in picasa has exceeded its limit so that might slow things down.
