I'm not normally a fan of zoos and hadn?t been in one for many years until our visit to the zoo in Lille. It was Sunday afternoon, we had seen most of the sights in Lille and we were wandering in the Bois de Boulougne when we came across Lille's zoo. As there was no entrance charge we decided to go in for a quick look around and ended up staying a couple of hours. I almost missed the start of the French open final between Federer and Nadal!

The highlight of the zoo was Monkey Island where a number of very active monkey's kept us onlookers amused. We also saw panthers, zebras and a good number of South American birds - useful for when we go to the Amazon in 2008.
