Maylin and I had a wonderful time this past Sunday. In the morning, we climbed the 50-100 steps to the top of the Arc de Triomphe. Nice sunny day! Afterwards, we headed over to Ave. Wagram for a McDonald's Happy Meal. Then we hopped on the metro to the zoo -- the Menagerie at Jardin des Plantes. Maylin was eager to find lions and tigers but, unfortunately, the big cat section was under renovation. We did see a rather sleepy spotted Chinese panther. The other animals were quite lively. We saw two young yaks sparring -- jumping and throwing their horns at each other. Two other goats did the same, but looked more hesitant. One camel tried to lure his partner out of their shelter. One ostrich tried to get away from another's unwanted advances. The animal visit was followed by a romp in the playground just outside the menagerie and a huge gaufre (waffle) covered with confectioner's sugar. Several passersby could not help looking at this little girl delicately gnoshing on her large dessert. More pictures on my flickr site.
When I started this blog, it was all about my experience in Paris while I was living there. But now that we've moved back to Berkeley, California, it seems that it's turned more into a mommy blog. I still have a lot of rich memories from Paris, though, that I plan on sharing soon.
Please leave comments about my blog and my photos. Or just say "hello"!
