A Very Busy Day, Part 1: Bronx Zoo, Again

This was an insane but fun day. We started off in a deluge at the Bronx Zoo, and I was so glad we brought Mikro's froggie raincoat, and that we were able to sit out the worst of the downpour at the Dancing Crane Cafe, on the bug carousel, and in the gift shop... Watching the peacocks dodge the rain was funny. I try not to anthropomorphize, but the poor bedraggled critters looked positively disgusted with the weather. We toured the reptile house (which Mikro really enjoyed, except for the part where they fed the cute fluffy bunny to the python...), and saw the birds of prey, then realized we were late for our tickets to the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanic Garden, and raced there on foot. It's a much longer walk than it looks. And with the damp, my arthritis was truly evil. But we pressed onwards... Which is another post, I suppose, due to the ton and a half of photos...
