Barcelona Zoo

Barcelona Zoo is most famous for Snowflake the albino gorilla who came to the zoo in 1966. He's been dead for almost ten years but there are still Snowflake postcards, posters etc all over Barcelona and now there's a new animated film devoted to him. 

It was exciting to see so many of the world's most exotic creatures assembled all in one place even if that place is very small and the locals ignore 'do not feed the animals' signs. 

I liked the chimpanzees the most because they were so funny. They were fighting and playing a lot.

this monkey was the cutest..

We have a rug just like this

Time to run!

Another sleepy leo...

Leo loved the zoo

 We brought sketch books and pencils so we could draw the animals

Olympia draws an elephant

Here it is...

Here is my giraffe drawing.

Wow girls!
Your drawings were fantastic. I think you both take after Daddy. Leo looks so happy. I hope Daddy held on tight to him when he was near Leo the lion!!!
Love Grandma Chris
