San Diego Zoo

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

What a day! Awesome weather, a lot of cute animals and 14000 steps according to mom’s pedometer. And after two hours of surfing yesterday I am pretty sore right now.

We arrived there at 10am and started walking around. We found a very good way to go around and at the same time seeing everything without going somewhere twice. Last time I was there I walked around for four hours and I missed like everything I realized today! But after almost 8 hours in the park I guess we saw pretty much everything. There’s not much more to say really, I will let the awesome pictures mom took today say the rest.

This was me and my mom’s last day together here in California. Hard to believe that it’s already been three weeks… It’s been so fast I’m not completely sure San Francisco even happened! I will miss her but it will be nice getting back to my normal working life again. And besides, I’m gonna see her again in no time at all :).
