The National Zoo

The National Zoo hasn't changed at all since my last visit, some 20+ years ago.  Oh, they're creating an elephant walk area, but they've apparently been doing that for years and it isn't complete yet.  This is the first time I got to actually see the pandas out and about (though I don't know if that counts as they aren't the same ones from 20 years ago).  The zoo is built on a hill, so you walk down from the parking lot and when it's time to have to walk back up; keep that in mind!!!  But the zoo is a fun place and worth a stop if you're in the area.

It was the first time however, that I was in a zoo and felt somewhat different.  It hit me when I walked into the elephant just seemed unnatural and just not right.  I then felt sorry for all the animals - they really should be out in their natural habitat.  (off my soapbox now).
