a busy weekend ends with a day off monday due to memorial day back in the states. i took a couple friends around the city all weekend before finishing up monday morning with seeing one off to the airport.
one of the things on my to-do list was finally completed sunday, a trip to the taronga zoo here in sydney. i don't live too far from it, but i've always put it off since it seemed like i'd have plenty of opportunities to fit it in. but after looking at my departure date which is coming up faster than i'd anticipated, it was time for the zoo.
i met up with A and M from work and we spent the afternoon walking through taronga's footpaths to see australia's common wildlife along with the other zoo's inhabitants. some of the other pix are on my flicker account but i'll put up a gallery link sometime soon. the one featured in this post is a meerkat. sometimes the first shot is the best and can never be replicated. just try to keep from smiling while looking at it.
