My 2nd visit. 1st one was about 5 years ago. Couldn't quite recall what I saw then, all I remembered was a small and boring zoo. However, it is still not as boring as sitting at home counting every second, thus the visit to refresh my memory and killing boredom at the same time. It was a worthwhile trip. The zoo has more animals now than before (I think) and the most exciting part was to be able to finally see a kiwi in real life, up-close and almost personal in a 30 mins kiwi talk. This creature is pretty shy, their enclosure is kept dark which makes it extremely hard to spot one. To my surprise, the kiwi is actually so much bigger than I thought.
Arhhh....the gorgeous ostrich! Misti!! LOL
We concluded the day with some
bear beer and steam mussels at Leuven.
