Rhino at the zoo

Rhino at the zoo

Went to the zoo on Saturday with Chris and his family. (His nephew is HUGE!!)  I am always a bit torn about the zoo. I like seeing the animals, but it seems sad that they are stuck in a cage or ‘habitat’. Walking around at noon, they look so miserable, hiding in the shade while kids bang on the glass and parents make stupid noises to get attention of the caged beast. Some of the animals are so strange looking. Like the Rhino, almost prehistoric looking. Like a living tank.

Took some pictures. Left my camera in my bag. With a bottle of water. Apparently the tops on the bottle has been re-designed, and is not very secure. Walking back from lunch I realized my bag was soaked through. It had been sitting under the table at lunch so I didn’t notice until the whole bottle spilled out. A sweater to dry out, a notebook to throw out… and my camera… fried. I’ve been letting it sit out to dry, but I think its a lost cause. So now I need to get a new camera. And a waterproof bag to keep it in, cause I don’t want a faulty bottle top to wreck another camera. I guess I’ll give it a couple days more to dry. How frustrating.
