A Visit to a Zoo
The trip to Walter Zoo with Alessio and my friend Aimee and her kids Noah and Lily took place on Good Friday which was 29th March. As you can see from one of the photos it was freezing cold, snowing, something that we are used too even now in the middle of April.
Walter zoo is in Gossau near to St.Gallen, we went there with the train and a bus takes you right to the zoo. There are lots of animals to look at and for me I liked to see the Siberian tigers, the first time they were busy eating and then they were having a nap. Tigers are beautiful animals although not sure if they should be kept in small enclosures.
Alessio and Noah enjoyed stroking the goats, I was quite surprised that Alessio wanted to do this, the kids also loved watching the chimpanzees swinging around and two were have a fight together!
There is also a show which runs for about one hour, sort of like a panto but with some animals. It is free but you are asked to give some money for it.
All in all it is a good day out, especially on a sunny day, there are lots of places for grilling and having a picnic.
