I am terribly behind in posts but am making an effort to catch up! A couple of weeks ago, we decided to venture out to Bosque de Chapultepec again. I think it’s safe to say that you could visit Bosque de Chapultepec several hours every day for a week and still not see everything! We had already hit one museum in the park so we decided to try this zoo on this particular Sunday. First of all, on the walk to the zoo (most particularly on the weekends), there are countless stalls selling all kinds of things, from balloons, T-shirts, and toys to cotton candy, tacos, and popcorn. It is completely reminiscent of a fair in the U.S.
When we got to the zoo, we discovered that not only was it FREE (win!) but it is also monstrous! It was closing about an hour and a half after we got there, so we only got to go through one section–tropical animals. There were A LOT of monkeys in particular!
Many of the animals were taking their afternoon siesta when we were there but the monkeys were extremely active and some were particularly curious about their onlookers, coming all the way up to the glass to say hello.
This guy was also not interested in sleeping. He was pacing back and forth and made me very nervous!
The chimp was my favorite though. He looked deep in thought.
Next trip to the zoo: reptiles!
