21st May - Taipei Zoo

AS Nick had meetings and stuff all day the girls and I thought we would go to the zoo. Now those of you who know me well will understand what a feat it was to find my way across to the far SE side of the city and get three different MRT (subway) lines not to mention finding my way from our hotel to the station in the first place. However we did find it no problem! It was a lovely day, hot but not too sunny and the zoo wasn't crowded at all. I had read that it was one of the best zoos in Asia, if not the top one and it certainly seemed to be looking after all the animals properly. They all had plenty of space and the signs in English told us about some great conservation projects that they are involved in.
They had some really unusual animal too that even Lara (animal expert) had not heard of. Our favourites were obviously the monkeys as they had a tiny baby monkey that was so cute. I also loved the penguins and some tiny little Lemurs that we saw.
What can you say about the zoo - pretty much the same as any other really.
When we get back about five Nick is already in the room and full of his day. We sort out some laundry to drop off on our way to eat dinner. It's a bit more expensive than Thailand but necessary. We eat again at the Italian / Taiwan restaurant as it is just around the corner from the hotel and we are all rather tired.
