It’s All Happening at the Zoo…

Living in NYC, each month I try to visit one place I have never been or do one thing I have never done.  It was time to visit The Bronx Zoo.

Since I wasn’t familiar with the Bronx, this was the perfect time to begin the adventure.  It was a warm Tuesday in August; the sun was shining and the temperature was mid to high 80’s.

Finally, the journey ended in the Congo where the trees are tall and shady-a place the Gorilla’s call home.  Fabulous!
