Blue Zoo Beijing

This weekend we took the kids to the Blue Zoo, an aquarium here in town. The pictures aren't particularly impressive - I don't think our camera was up to the task of taking photos in a dark, underground, surrounded-by-glass kind of place, but at least the grandparents will enjoy them.

The first stop was the shark tank, where you could get up close and personal with the beasts. The glass enclosure isn't very high, and while Shay was posing for a photo, one of the sharks bumped the top edge of the glass, splashing water all over us and scaring the little ones. The sea turtles weren't as scary, but they were equally close to us.

Next we stepped on a moving sidewalk and entered a glass tunnel that took us under the aquarium. This was a huge hit, as we were surrounded by eels, stingrays, sharks and all sorts of sea creatures. Even Kyra got into it. And if you've never looked up and gazed upon the butt of a sea turtle directly overhead, well, you don't know what you're missing.


Please. Write your own stuff.
