Yesterday I took the children in my class on their final field trip, to a zoo in Yokohama called Zoorasia. A lot of zoos in Japan are a pitiful site and made me upset. Zoorasia however is a zoo set in what seems like a huge botanical garden and where the animals are in enclosures that are more naturalistic settings. Not many of the animals are caged. This zoo is dedicated to the display and preservation of endangered species. The rain held off and everyone had a good day. I'm sure Jazz and Dixie could smell some of the animals on me as when I got home I got a very good sniffing over.
