On Tuesday we went to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington D.C. I think this was my seventh zoo. The first animals we saw were ring-tailed lemurs. Ring-tailed lemurs live in Madagascar. The males have stink fights instead of fist fights. Smelly. We couldn’t get a pic of them because they were too fast.
It was really cold outside so we went to the indoor Amazon Exhibit. There we saw lots of animals that live in the amazon rainforest. There was the……..
and the golden poisonous frog
The golden poison frog is endangered. It lives in Colombia.
We didn’t see very much else because it was super cold outside. I recommend this zoo but not on a chilly winter day.
This week, we went to Virginia to visit my grandmother. The drive from Pennsylvania was four hours. On the first day, we went to Whole Foods and ate sushi outside. The sushi was yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy.
The next day, we went to Burke Lake Park to play. I met another little girl who was five and also from China. Her name was Chung Ling. We spoke in Chinese to each other. I also rode a train around the park and a horse on a carousel. I played miniature golf with Avik and Daddy. Daddy won.
On the other days, we went swimming. I can swim underwater really fast and long now. We went to another park and a movie theater. I saw a 3D movie about Planes. I spent time with my family – Aunt Chand, Grandma, and my Uncle Sudeb’s new wife’s mom. I read books, ate ice cream (my new favorite flavor is cookies and cream) and made mosaics.
The best though, was the visit on Friday to the Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. I went into a room full of butterflies and took pictures. My brother Avik was scared.
I had a great week. Now I’m back at my mom’s mom’s house until next week, when I go to London!
The World Atlas also says some interesting things about Washington D.C. With 132 rooms and the 35 bathrooms, the White House is home to the US President. This historic building also serves as the office for the President and his staff. They change the President every four years, sometimes eight years.
My grandma lives near the President. I sometimes visit her. We can go to the White House together this summer.
