On tuesday we had planned to go to the zoo. I was so excited because I wanted to go to this zoo last time I was here but didn't make it. So when I woke up on tuesday morning and it was raining I was pretty mad. But after looking up the weather forcast for sydney and many text messages we decided we would go anyways! Trav, Kev and I made it to the station to catch the 9 oclock train! Thats early! We had to leave that early though because it takes an hour and half to get to the city and then we had to get another train to Circular Quay and then from there we had to get a ferry to the zoo! I would say we got to the zoo at about 11:30 or 11:45 so that was good. When we got there we took what I think was called the air safari up to the top of the zoo.

You get in little cars that are on a cable and go right over all the animals! It was REALLY cool. Pretty much it is a great zoo. I mean I haven't been to a lot of zoos but this one was great! So nice and so spread out. The first thing we did was go to the bird show! Now that was amazing. First of all the view was great! You could see the harbour bridge and the opera house behind where the show was. And then they had this recording of an aboriginal story and what the guy was saying the birds were acting out! I can't even really explain it but it was awesome! ummm. They had a gallah that took money from people in the crowd! They had owls that flew right over your head. There was some huge brid named Slammer. He broke things with rocks. It was just really cool! We also saw a seal show but honestly that was kinda boring. They just did the normal seal tricks and told you not to throw plastic bottles in the ocean. Other than that it was just a zoo with regular zoo animals. Oh they had so many gorillas. They were funny because there was this one HUGE one and all the other ones would throw food at him and then run away!! and the chimps did the same things! so funny. Well anyway it was fun! oh ya and as you can tell it wasn't raining in the city.. and by the middle of the day it was sunny out!!
