The Zoo in TM

Last Saturday week took two of the boys, Fanel and Bella, to the Tg Mures zoo. This is a typical zoo in some ways...you can see lions, tigers, bears, birds, fish, and other sorts of animals...but then there are some things that are a little different than zoos back home...like you can nearly touch all the animals, you can see the entire animal carcus of the poor thing that provided lunch the lions, the horses roaming freely in the park, roosters with peacocks and gunieas all in the same cage, and the very large snakes that are behind glass cages with cracks in them! It was a great day though! The weather was wonderful, the leaves are falling and it wasn't too crowded. Jack loved watching the boys run, skip and talk to the animals. We are blessed to be here bonding with these kids!
The boys
Jack and the bears...don't worry, objects are not as close as they appear!

Fanel loved telling us in English that his family is here at the zoo..that his brothers were the monkeys! Silly boy! Had to put this picture in. Not a great one...but a great story. We were trying to get a shot with the camels, but just as Jeff took the picture the camel walked over, reached his head over the fence and nibbles at my side...I jumped and screamed...and so did the rest of us. Not funny Jeff..he just stood there watching and laughing! He knew it was coming. Too bad he didn't get it on film:)

My new friend..
