Our first day in San Diego and we explored the expanse of the San Diego zoo. It is big, there were large crowds, but there were lots of staff and even outdoor escalators. We had fun and as usual it was me (Michael) who was out of energy first and had to be dragged through the last part of the day.
We added an extra bit to the Zoo so that we could get close to a few animals. We had a lot of fun. The Rhino felt like a thick soft leather. The flamingos ate out of our hands and we were so close to a leopard.
We had dinner in the Gas-Light district, named for the gas lights that stand in the streets. We ate at ‘Chianti’ and had a fresh and authentic Italian meal. The service was yet again good and the area had a crowded happy city buzz to it.
