17th February - in Nils' words...






We got up early, to go to Perth Zoo. We got an all day family rider ticket, which covers most transport in the city area, and took the train to the city centre. From there, we took the free CAT buses to the jetty by the bell tower, and took the ferry across Swan River. It had (surprisingly) started chucking it down with rain, so we took refuge in the Bellhouse cafe, and waited for the rain showers to ease off. We had to wait about an hour, so bought some coffee and cakes to make the time pass! Oskar tasted the apple tart, which he really loved! The weather eventually improved, and we continued to the zoo. We saw many nice animals in the zoo, amongst others Cheetah, Lions, Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos (and Lynn told her story where she had to climb a tree to escape a rhino in South Africa), several primates. Lynn found the orangutans really cute, especially the baby orangutan. We also went on the Australian bushwalk, however we did not have time to look at the animals, because we were trying to catch up with Lisa and her kids, and Oskar was a bit cranky. We came back home at 1900, and had takeaway pizza for dinner to make it simple.
