Look at me - I am cute - Give me a bun!

After a great breakfast at the The Moon River that saved many of the mornings in Shanghai - I had all the coffee I could take and a great omelette - Kaija was in seventh heaven with her pineapple juice and her omelette, we decided to do something less stressful than walking the streets.

We took a Taxi (again!) to the Zoo - we came early to an almost empty Zoo in beautiful sunshine. The tickets were reasonable and we very fast could see that the Zoo was quite big with a very good distance between the animals.

We were met by two guys who were selling trips around the Zoo in golfcars - one of the was 200 yuan a person which is totally out of proportion and the other one at 20 yuan. We tried to understand the difference but he only said "click-click panda" and from what we understood the difference was that the expensive would take us to all the sites with out walking.

Come on - show me what you got?
We took the cheap one, the weather was great and we needed the walk after our rich breakfast:D

Destination of the ride was the (poor) panda - we had our hopes high but we only saw one sleeping and very dirty Panda that had crapped it self. I could not take a picture of that! The surrounding of its cage was also very cloomy. I had imagined that the star attraction would be in a better place and in better condition:(

Next to the Panda they had the Red Panda - who are a lot smaller but they were in much better condition. Funny beggars.

I general the condition for the animals could have been better - some of them were ok - the giraffes and the elphants.

All the amimals were used to get things thrown to then especially buns (4 yuan for 4), which were sold everywhere.
