Munich Zoo

Hello, all you lovely folks. Hope you had a good weekend.

As I mentioned on Friday, our trip to Munich ended in a zoo, because of a three-year-old’s heartfelt request. For this reason, we braved the cold, ignored the patches of snow on the ground, and went to see some animals.

The highlight of the zoo trip was the aquarium, because it took us out of the cold (win!) and Kayla ADORES fish. Might have mentioned that before.

This zoo was interesting in that it has a lot of indoor areas, built to simulate the climate of the natural habitats the animals would typically live in. With this came the plants, birds etc that would be grouped in each area. Zoo visitors can enter each of these spaces and observe the animals through massive glass panes.

Look, I don’t know how I feel about zoos. For Kayla, it’s valuable education. For the animals, it’s safe, even though they were taken from their natural spaces. Still, they’re well provided for and taken care of (as far as we could see). Please don’t hate us for taking our kid there. 🙂

Here are some of the photos.

Have a good one, folks!
