Day 74 – A visit to the zoo

Oh, no, a beautiful day! I guess I will just have to go out for a walk. On the way out I met Julie, baby Cleo, and Julie’s mom, also getting ready to go for a walk. Hey, I was able to string a few sentences together, so maybe I am indeed starting to think in French :)

My walk took me to the banks of the River Rhone, but the path was blocked because they were doing bank stabilization work. Dear students of mine, note the bolts and the use of steel mesh to catch falling rocks.

From there I headed toward the little zoo that is in the middle of the city. It is a little thing, with no exotic animals, but the kids have a good time looking at the wooly pigs, cows, goats, and local water fowl.
