A Zoo like no other
We spent the day at the Zoo in Mismaloya, which was a three bus ride excursion from La Cruz Marina, but soooo worth it. Ridding the bus in Mexico is an experience in itself! It is a great way to get around, and you can go just about anywhere by bus here, for very few pesos. We went to the zoo with our friends on Eyoni, who also happen to be best friends with our best friends who are watching over our house in California....Talk about six degrees of separation. They are one boat away from us even. So back to this Zoo.... all the animals were awake and hungry! We fed just about all of them, even the Hippo! There were few that had fences or plexi glass separating us from them. Jack even had the opportunity to frolic with a baby Jaguar, and two baby tigers. It was an experience he will never forget. After the zoo we met up with three other families for pizza and beer at Philos, a great pizza place walking distance from our marina. We are loving La Cruz, and the fact that there are 5 boys here Jacks age. Provisioning is great, the weather is great, there is always a party to attend or a gathering to go to, so life is good, very very good once again. It will be hard to leave this place. So far it is up in our top 5 favorites.
