Duisburger Zoo

Last Sunday we went to Duisburg Germany and went to the zoo there. It was lovely. Germany seems to have more parks and playgrounds and the kids had a blast at the one in the zoo. We were also able to see some different animals, including a sloth that was just hanging around, not in a cage, warm weather penguins, and the biggest bear we'd ever seen -kodiak, but couldn't get a very good shot of him. We were able to get a giant Coke, but no ice of course. Still it was so nice to get such a big drink! Thirst quenching! It was a very nice day. They also have a dolphin show at this zoo, but everyone was getting tired and it was starting to sprinkle so we decided to head back to Hengelo. It started pouring on the way home. I am still so amazed at the people here on their bikes in the rain! Especially the women! Many of the older people really dress up and they're out there with their high heels, hose and skirts, riding their bikes in the rain. Some use one hand to hold an umbrella, but most don't bother. One of these days I'm going to get a picture of that.
