“IN PHOTOS” is a series I will use to share many of the hundreds of photos I have taken during my travels. It is a series I have thought about for a while now, but did not want to start until I got back home from my trip. However after spending a week in Chefchaouen, Morocco I couldn’t wait any longer. “IN PHOTOS” will not have a set schedule like my “MUSIC MONDAY” or “PHOTO ROUND UP” series. “IN PHOTOS” will be a post with several photos with no limit. The only restriction this series will have is that it must be about a certain subject or theme. I will write a brief paragraph or sentence describing the subject or theme of the photos and then post the photos. I will not caption the photos like I do on my “PHOTO ROUND UP” with my thoughts. I want to use “IN PHOTOS” to share my photos and let you come up with your own thoughts about the images and hope you share them with me.
Established in 1958 to help study, conserve and preserve Himalayan fauna Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park in Darjeeling is described as one of India’s best Zoo’s. Val & I thought we should check it out for sure. We both were a bit nostalgic because it had been years since either of us went to a zoo and were both hoping it would be a bit like home. We reminisced a bit about our Zoo experience when we were younger. Darjeeling also has a botanical garden that houses a collection of Himalayan plants. We were excited and made one of our days in Darjeeling a Zoo/Botanical Garden day.
We made the twenty minute walk down hill to the Zoo early in the morning and were quite surprised to see it was very clean and very pleasant. It took us a little over an hour to make the walk around the small Zoo. It was interesting to see some of the animals… the most exciting was the Red Panda. One of my dreams is to hug a panda one day. It doesn’t look like a normal panda, but it is still very damn cute. We then made our way to the Botanical Garden and enjoyed a nice walk down hill seeing many plants from the area. To be honest they all looked like plants I have planted at home. Even still it was still nice and we both enjoyed a day surrounded by nature. Through out the day I managed to take about 100 photos and thought I would share with you some of my favorite. Oh & yes that includes a photo of a kitten we saw outside of the zoo and of a human being taking photos with her iPad.
Hope you enjoyed the photos & I hope you share your thoughts below.
