Imagine a park surrounded by water with meandering path amid spectacular tropical plants where white tigers look you in the eye
ducks stroll under the feet of thousands of holiday visitors, bats hang at eye level
parrots fly overhead
, lemurs walk along stairway hand rails
, orangutans swing above you on vines,
and elephants show you how they work in the forests
Without (apparent) barriers, bars, cages, this is the most marvelous zoo! The crowds on this New Years holiday were impressive but polite. Stilt men distributed candy to children and lion dancers frolicked.
For the first time we got to see the elusive Pygmy hippos from Liberia.
And a giant panda…asleep.
Fast food lunches are not necessarily KFC, although they do have that too.
Turtles nipped at our toes and myriads of different species of monkeys inhabited their own islands just off the paths.
Then we went to the American School…wow, like a junior college.
But I was too tired for many pictures. Happy Chinese New Year!
