Santiago Zoo

Dean and Kristin got back from the Elqui Valley on Friday night so we had the weekend with them. Saturday was just a lazy day around the house but yesterday, we had a big day. We first went to church and then from there we went to the Santiago Zoo. It's located on Cerro San Cristobal and it's supposed to be a great place to get good views of the city. We hadn't been there before so it was new for us too. It's a popular place for Chileans to spend a Sunday - there were tons of people there yesterday.

There is a good variety of animals at the zoo, which is neat, but some of the enclosures were terrible. It made you feel bad for the animals. Kirsi was so excited to see all the different animals but wasn't too keen on seeing the monkeys. Ever since the time we were at the Buin Zoo and the baboon jumped on the wire fence and screamed at us, she's been freaked out by the monkeys.

We didn't go up to take the cable car because we had already spent a lot of time in the hot sun. So we decided to head home and spend the rest of the afternoon in the pool and then finish the day off with a barbecue. What a great day!
