So, a couple of days before New Year's Eve, Matteo Tobia and I decided to pay a visit to the animals of the London Zoo….
We took our first tube train of the holiday and we reached Camden Town. From there we had a 15 minutes walk to the gates of the zoo. It was a cold morning (what else?) with blue blue skies and I had a new warmer jacket on my shoulders (and my chunky scarf + my lovely hat !!!!) : we were all covered up for the occasion!!!
I don't love zoos, but I love animals a lot and so do my boys. Zoos have their limits, but I love their animals' conservation projects, so I hope our money will be used for a good cause!
We had a lot of encounters (I loved the tigers and the giraffe, deeply!) but I didn't take pics of them all (such as reptiles! bleah), but we did see all of them! The boys had the map in their hands and I had to follow their decisions….
We had even an unexpected meeting ….
|not good to take a picture of me in a distorting mirror….|
After these beauties (who doesn't love tigers?), we had a stop for lunch at the zoo restaurant and … look at the next photo ….
Do you know David Mitchell ????
Well, since I live in Maputo, I do !!!! Unbelievable, right????
Every Tuesday night, Paolo, our boys and I switch on the TV on BBC Entertainment and we watch shows like QI and Would I lie to you?, just to have some fun or laugh (when I'm able to follow the quick repartees!!!)…. That's why I know that guy!!!
Matteo and Tobia were so worried I wanted to stop him to have a chat to explain how we know about his existence, but I promised them not to do that! Even though I was so tempted…..
This photo is not great, but I find funny that Mr Mitchell is close to the sign "feeding time at the zoo"…
Our tour can resume now !
… we forgot to collect the picture made at the zoo entrance with all 3 together …. I know I have avoided to spend a ridiculous amount of money for a silly pic, but I still think about it …
