NEXT DAY (Today)
I woke up and packed. I went out to call Nita and eat some Taco Time. That place is so much better than Taco Bell, but more $ [Mexican fast food hierarchy: Taco Bell, Taco Time, Mucho Burrito. ranked lowest to best in price and quality... although all 3 are delicious in their own right].
Afterwards I went to the forestry park and zoo. The place is basically a massive field and park with a cricket area, baseball diamond, picnic/bbq areas and gardens. You can even buy permits to fish in their ponds. Because it was late morning on a school day, it was only me and a few others there. All of the others were just 1 parent and 1 or 2 young kids. I assume the other parent was working and the kids looked too young for school. It was a really nice day, so all the animals were lazing around. They weren't doing much, but since it was so quiet that day, they were all out where I could see them (except the grizzly bear and a few birds) [The grizzly bear could SORT of be seen as a shadowy lump in a giant concrete tube]. Watching all the sleeping lazy animals made me miss my lazy sundays with Nita.
I bussed back into town and grabbed my junk [My bags, not my crotch] and now I'm waiting for my greyhound to meet Wakana. I should probably grab some food first [ended up eating at a mall fast food cafeteria, and had a veal cordon bleu, that was alright]. Also, the pygmy goats were my favourite.
