Koala Adjacent

23 Feb

Today we headed down to the Melbourne Zoo. It was quite nice. I would say average in size and animal diversity from zoos I’ve visited in the US. My favorite parts were the butterfly enclosure and the Australian bush exhibits. The  butterfly enclosure was packed with butterflies that landed on us many times.

The Australia bush exhibit had all the standard stuff we’d expect to see: kangaroo, emus, echindas, wallabys, koalas and wombats. No dingos… but there were a lot of tender babies running around.

Kangaroos!

We had a disgusting zoo lunch so decided that we needed to head back to Sichuan House for dinner. Mmm. It was just as aweomse, if not more the second time. We repeated Rob’s tofu dish and also tried sichuan chicken. So delicious.

The next few days are going to be disgustingly hot, so except a couple of posts about the wonders of air conditioning and the interior of our apartment.

    Too bad you don’t have my butterfly book! Don’t know if it only includes butterflies that are known here. Gram Pitoni

      Probably does include the majority of butterflies we saw yesterday. The collection was world wide and most seemed to include butterflies and moths I could identify from the US. Pretty spectacular exhibit! -Rob

    Fun! Our zoo doesn’t have elephants so it’s nice to see yours has plenty. Thank you for not posting pictures of spiders this time.
