During the visit to the Zoo last week the kids and I got to see many animals which we haven’t seen in awhile. It was the first time that I brought the kids to the zoo solo. They were not that keen on seeing all the animals at the zoo so we left after we had out lunch.
I didn’t manage to snap many pictures at the zoo as it was quite tricky managing the DSLR while pushing the pram and keeping an eye on the boys who were running here and there.
Here are the better pictures which I manage to capture of the Crocodile and the hippopotamus.
It is really interesting to see stone statues by the roadside. We saw many while touring Jeju island, South Korea in June. The above statue was found in many places on the island. It is the God of Protection and Fertility and many newly wed couples can be seen stroking the nose for a boy and the ear for a girl.
I saw this statue among others in a garden along the roadside. This person looks so happy hugging his owl.
This was another unusual statue in the garden. It looks like there is a crab on the top of the rock the statue is leaning against.
Sunbathing statue. This statue was made in June 2010. I can’t read Korean so not sure what is written on the name plate next to it.
