Beijing Zoo

 Ni hao!

 I'm going to share with you some of the photos I took during our visit to Beijing Zoo. This wasn't part of the itinerary; it was an excursion that some of us decided to go on as a group.

 We met and divided into threes to get taxis. We started off as a group of maybe twelve but various accidental splittings-up meant my group became just me, James, Dinesh and Rick. All three were people I hadn't known that well before so it was nice to have the chance to get to know them a bit better.

 Here is the map of the Zoo:

And here are some of the animals you can see there:

Here is a flamingo:

Giant panda!

Am I the only one who thinks the otter looks like a beaver?

A monkey who looks like he's telling someone off!

 As you can see, there are some incredible animals. My personal favourite was the Golden Eagle, although of course, the pandas are very beautiful as well.

 Thanks for reading,
