|Today, we headed out the National Zoo. When we got there, I realized that I had forgotten to put the memory card back in the camera, so we had to run up to CVS and buy a new one. Now, we can officially start exploring the zoo! We started on the Asia Trail with the Sloth Bear. We had just missed the feeding, but the bear was still snooping around looking for any missed termites. We continued on the trail, seeing the Clouded Leopard and Fishing Cat then went over to the panda exhibit. One panda was sitting outside eating bamboo - a great opportunity for photos. Another was inside (also busy eating bamboo) as well as a red panda. Next we headed to the Bird House and outdoor bird exhibits, passing the elephants on the way. The Elephant House and Outpost were closed for construction, so the best place to see them was from this trail. Starting to feel hungry, we stopped for lunch at the Panda Plaza then did the African Savannah loop to see the zebras, cheetahs, and gazelles. Then we headed down to the Small Mammal House and Great Apes. The gorillas were particularly active, including a very cute little one. Our last stop was the Reptile Discovery Center and around back to see the Komodo Dragons, before we ran out of time. The zoo was soon closing so we left and took the Metro back to Alexandra. We got off at King Street and headed into Old Town to go shopping for a bit, then had dinner at an Irish Pub. We headed back to the hotel and took advantage of the fitness center before going to bed.
