Adventures in Asia

Chiang Mai Zoo

Greg and I went to the Chiang Mai Zoo today (which is a surprisely good zoo) and inbetween bouts of dehydration and heat stroke, we saw some cute animals. YAY! Here are a few photos… we’ll post more later…

The giant pandas (on loan from china) are by far the highlight of the zoo. They are way cuter in person than I ever could have imagined.

This baby hippo wanted to let everyone know how tough he is. RAWWR! (actually, i think he was just yawning)

Following the example of a Thai guy, we fed this giraffe some seed pods. Check out the blue tongue action as he grabs it from Greg:

Holy blue tongue!

Good morning everyone in Seattle! Happy Monday!
