Have you been to the Zoo?

I managed to stay at home today after the self-evaluation school unit Teachers' assembly was postponed and I am so glad I did.
The weather turned all of a sudden really dark and windy and it rained a little bit so staying at home and taking a nap was a must! I have been really out and about lately and am too tired.
So after sipping some coffee I thought of giving my blog a look and I realised that since January there are still some blogposts that I wanted to make but didn't have the time to.
So in random order....
the last of my trip to the Peloponnese which had a detour via Athens on the way back to Thessaloniki.
That two-day detour was filled with meetings with relatives and family life which I really loved. Coffee at a roof garden bar opposite the Acropolis

and also a theatrical performance  The train on the clouds at the Train at Rouf, which is a whole play taking place inside a tent and the compartments of a train and it was really good.

Finally we took a day trip to the Attica Park (the Zoo). That was my first visit there and I was the one who suggestd this as there are children in my cousin's family where we were staying. The children had already been to the zoo of course but I hadn't,so it was great they accepted my suggestion.
Here are lots of photos from our tour there and we were lucky to find time to watch the dolphin show too!Enjoy the tour!

it's nice to have the chance to see all this animals from so close.
but i am not sure they are having a good time in their small areas or cages. it's very sad people want to captivate freedom. especially the birds.

Lovely! I visited Athens years ago with my university, but we didn't have time to go to the zoo. :D

You took some really great photos at the zoo. I love looking at the white houses and buildings in the background, too. There are many of the same animals we see here in a zoo except for some of the exotic birds. Love seeing the flamingos...much whiter than the ones here. Enjoy your day my friend! Sweet hugs! (I'll show off my seaglass soon for you to see!)
