We let the Goodenough College cat (named Goodcat) into our flat for a short visit. It was so fun to have a cat, even if it was only for a few hours! Isn't she adorable?


Saw this on the sidewalk while walking along...anyone missing a gray hippo?

London Zoo

A sunny day without rain is rare in London, so I took advantage of the pleasant weather to enjoy the London Zoo today. I saw an array of beautiful and strange creatures, including Moon Jellyfish, White-cheeked Gibbons, and Emperor Tamarins! I also learned that male rather than female seahorses have babies and saw a Colobus monkey doing something rather interesting (see below)! 

(These signs were everywhere, and it was hilarious because the water was not deep at all!)

(Yes, that is a Colobus monkey urinating! You never know what you'll come across at the zoo!)

Of course I had to see my relative, the White-cheeked Gibbon.

My favorite, the awesome emperor tamarin monkey! (We called them "little wizards.")

Gift shop time! Loved the pink stuffed animals!

I really wanted one of these giant lemurs, but they were too expensive. Maybe someday!
