Rainy Day at the wild animal park

I stopped in Göttingen to visit some relatives that have had an addition to their family since the last time I saw them. It was a cool day and threatened to be rainy but we drove out to the Wild Animal Park anyway. Basically this is a large park with wild animals in their (near) native habitats with a walking path through the park and overlooks into the pens.
When we first got to the park, we were greeted by the goats so we spent a good half hour feeding them pellets from the machines. And then it started raining so we went into the little shelter and ate the picnic lunch we brought.
We saw some other animals, but animals are animals in any language so this stop was mostly fun for the kids. It eventually stopped raining and we fnished walking the park. A few more pellets for the goats and we decided to head home to warm tea and waffles. Frauke whipped up some little waffles quick and we warmed up on tea and then it was a mad dash to the train station to catch my train home. I was running up the steps as the train was pulling up to the platform. Three minutes later, we were departing the city. I hate cutting it that close!
