Kunming Zoo

July 13th was our wedding anniversary but as it was a Sunday we had to work. Fortunately we both have Mondays and Tuesdays off together and the weather (despite the rainy season) wasn’t too bad so we paid a visit to Kunming zoo.

There were two highlights to the zoo, the first being that Jack got to see Raccoons for the first time (he’s mad about them and often jokes about keeping one as a pet) which he was thrilled about. For me it only confirmed that we won’t be keeping a Raccoon as a pet ever.

The second highlight was an unexpected haunted cave which at fist was filled with crappy dinosaur models that moved slightly as you approached them but as they evidently ran out of dinosaurs the models transformed into random monsters and eventually chainsaw wielding lunatics. Jack actually yelled at one point having been caught off guard, it was hilarious and on a par with Ripley’s mirror maze in Pattaya in terms of fun.

After the zoo we were wandering around Kunming looking for a place to get a drink (sadly pubs are almost non-existent) when we came across a trendy (and what I initially thought was a strip club given all the dark drapes) bar that was effectively empty and selling cocktails = perfect. My new favourite place for a Pina Colada in Kunming.
