From NYC to our nation’s Capital for today’s Top 200 Photo.
As I mentioned before, we loved to go to the National Zoo to go see the Pandas. Well, thanks to Tai Shan, the zoo got a huge injection of donations which it used to revitalize its Asian section of the zoo. Eventually they got a pair of fire foxes. The fire fox is also known as the red panda. Back when we were in college I was visiting Danielle during summer classes and we took a trip to Syracuse. While there we went to the zoo. I saw they had a sign for a red panda. Whoa! I only knew about the black and white ones! I was quite annoyed that it was just some raccoon-looking thing.
Whenever we try to take Dave or Dan somewhere, out of the ordinary stuff happens. In yesterday’s photo we took Dave to Manhattan. We were unable to see the Empire State Building because it was closed due to high winds. This photo is from when Dave came to visit and we went to DC so he could see the Zoo. It rained like crazy all day, making the Zoo a pain and making DC very muddy. And it hadn’t rained in weeks. But, these little guys did look super-cute (kawaii) all wet like that.
