UENO ZOO - As you may have read earlier, this was an unplanned visit.
Ueno Zoo is right inside the Ueno Park.
If there's something I know about life, it is this.. it's full of surprises!
I went to Antarctica in search of penguins & glaciers, I found something else, totally unexpected. :-)))
I went to the Ueno Zoo in search of Panda (well, I saw that at the entrance)... guess what I found?!
PENGUINS! & most importantly KING Penguins! !!!
Something that I had missed while in Antarctica!
Imagine my surprise & my joy!!!
I was excited!
King Penguins in Japan?!
Oh mine, totally unexpected! Totally delightful!
& even Macaroni Penguins!
I'm absolutely thrilled!!!
Is there anything that Japan does not have?!?!?!
You are right again, Brad!
There is SOMETHING that's interesting & unusual I uncover again ;-)
Isn't this cool?!
