as vinicius and i sat having lunch today. i realized i go home in 4 days!!! :o( well technically 5, but the 5th day is a travel day so it doesn't count!
anyhow we spent the whole day at the parque das nacoes - the site of the 1998 world expo. now it boasts europe's biggest oceanarium, plus some other attractions like an interactive knowledge museum etc...
personally i get along extremely well with oceanariums and zoos-they're so much fun and i always get lost for hours there. i just love them and cant get enough! i'm the same way with cathedrals-i go in each and every one i have time for in every city. it's a disease really is what it is.
we spent...3 or 4 hours in the oceanarium alone watching all the animals-this time penguins included! the otters were also a favorite as we caught them during feeding time-Adorable with a capital A. we stood for a good 15 minutes watching them use their little paws to peel the shrimp before eating them while splashing around on their backs. i swear they were just showing off!
after a bounce for vinicius in some moon-walking contraption in the knowledge center and a ride on the air tram, it was back to the hostel for a siesta. this is seriously my type of country.
