My flickr friends from Norwich, Leo and Elly were here in Paris last week and we strolled through Paris cemeteries and other places averaging 16,000 steps a day. Just telling you this to make you realise, if you didn’t know that the life of a tourist is definitely hard work! 😉
Elly wanted to visit the Jardin des Plantes zoological garden, the oldest zoo in France. I was not very enthusiastic as I remembered going to that zoo with my first digital camera and finding it dirty, smelly and showing animals in rather bad shape, not to mention a high price for such a small zoo. But I must admit that the Jardin des Plantes Ménagerie (as the zoo is called) has improved a lot. And we certainly enjoyed it.
This was sort of tricky to film, as the animals were of course, on the other side of chainlink fence.
