Reisverslag Oh deer
7 mei 2014
Today was a very cool day. I didn't have to go to work, because Ralph had to go to the doctor so I could sleep-in !!
I had a headache so sleeping would do me good. When I eventually woke up, I found a note in the bathroom that everyone was gone. Ironically when reading the note they came home, so I wasn't alone anymore. I had to get dressed and when I was finished with that I got to the kitchen where I had a lovely breakfast. Typical American waffles with banana and maple syrup.
After finishing the breakfast we got in the car to the Bronx Zoo. Nacha and Phillipe are not so good in English so they communicate a lot in Spanish, maybe I'll get to know some sentences too. For now I don't understand anything of it which is a pity. On our way to the zoo I spotted a deer along the road, pretty cool since they don't show themselves that often at the moment. Normally around this period of the year they are often exposing themselves to mankind, but because of the long winter they don't.
The cool thing about this zoo is that the animals are not locked up in cages like the Dutch Zoos. Another awesome feature is the monorail that travels through a part of the zoo. We saw elephants, 'on the verge of extinction'- horses, red pandas, a lot of deer etc. The trip took about 25 minutes and after that we were hungry and grabbed some lunch. We had some lovely hamburgers and a coke. Normally you would get a normal cup, however in America they always think you are thirsty and they give you a super size cup. When eating we talked about that and they told me about a guy standing up against the super size meals and cups. He wanted a ban on the super size idea due to the amount of people having obesity, however he never succeeded. When finished went on with our expedition, because there was a lot more to see. We saw giraffes, tigers, gorillas, monkeys, fish, snakes and zebra's. After spending like 4 hours in the zoo we got home and dropped Nacha and Phillipe off at the train station since they would go to Manhattan. At home we did our daily routine, getting into the comfy outfit and do the workout! We did squats, sit-ups, crunches, planks, push-ups, bridges, lunges and a lot more. Then we refilled our fuel again by having some amazing chicken and salad. We finished the day by watching Glee and New Girl and got to bed after an awesome day. :)

Wij willen je bedanken voor al jouw reisverslagen. Erg leuk om dit allemaal te lezen. Zo te zien heb je het erg naar je zin. Je ziet veel en ook de ontmoeting met je moeder en Peter was weer dikke mik.
Je hebt geloof ik wel beter weer dan wij hier. Vandaag 8 mei stormt het, plensbuien en zelfs onweer.
Lisa nog ruim een weekje en het zit er weer op.
Liefs van opa en oma!
