One part of my year on exchange in Germany that I’ll never be able to forget is Christmas Dinner. With lashings of food decorating the dining table, I believed we’d be accompanied by a bunch of guests… I was wrong.
Thanks to Kim’s crafty skills (and access to a scanner), we’re underway with the Animails project. So here’s an introduction to our three characters up close… with a little hint to what they’re all about and what adventures they’ll be illustrating. :]
No, it’s not a game of chess… it’s that I’ve recently crossed something off my bucket list: I managed to see the world renowned Berlin Zoo. :]
I encountered creature’s great and small, and with a friend who was visiting her Uncle in Berlin, we managed to conquer the zoo completely and see almost all of its 1,500 different species. The zoo itself was preoccupied with construction site chaos, most likely due to the fact the park opened in 1844 and needed some major upgrades… it provided a bit of confusion when trying to navigate around to see the 17,000 or animals… :/
But nonetheless, it was a great day to be had, and the first outing in Berlin. :]
So there’s lots of happy snaps of the lovely little creatures….
and the not so lovely ones:
