A couple weeks back we explored a new zoo that was built while we were stateside. When we first arrived back we heard rumors about a zoo but I was not going to believe it until I actually saw it. Before our team leader’s family left for Germany Anni, Evy, and me joined them and met some local friends there for a day at the zoo. It was awesome! It costs less than a dollar for the kids to get in and although not everything was finished yet we saw lots of animals, played at a park there, got faces painted, rode on a camel, made faces at the monkeys, jumped in a sweaty blow-up house, and even saw alligators eat (which was a bloodbath and a bit scary but also rather intriguing- the throw out raw chickens and then pour out water bottles full of cow blood everywhere-see video). We are so grateful to have another place to take the watoto here and since Anni LOVED it I see many return trips in our future.
Anni gets even more sweaty
Evy made friends too!

Looks pretty impressive. The face painting is great – love that butterfly!
Sure beats the Brookfield zoo! Camel ride looks so fun! Anni looks beautiful as a butterfly!
What is going on with Annelie's skirt?!?
I LOVE Anni's dress! Save it for me incase I ever get a girl! It just perfect!
I LOVE Anni's blue dress! I want one for myself!
