Assignments done, exams finished!!! Time to do a bit of exploring!! On Friday we decided to visit the Guadalajara Zoo. Armed with camera, water and suncream we grabbed a taxi and headed off to the outskirts of Guadalajara. Another beautiful day!!!Our Taxi finally dropped us off at the front gate and I was amazed and the sculpture and pond (by Sergio Bustamante) at the front entrance. Spectacular!
We payed our entrance fee which included free train rides and made our way through the gates to be greeted by more of Busamante's work. Blue monkeys!!! My Son would love these. I couldn't help taking heaps of photos of them.
We then spent a couple of very relaxing hours wandering around the gardens and checking out all the animals. The highlights were the hippo's, panda bear and the big cats!!!
There was also a Polar Bear who took great delight in swimming back and forewards in front of the crowd. He would dive accross the pool and then, turn and float back slowly past them. Such a show off!! Thoroughly enjoyed the day. If you are ever in downtown Guadalajara a visit to the zoo is worth the effort.
