March had the theme ‘Animals’ for the grandchildren so we decided to go to the Madrid Zoo this weekend. We were very lucky to have chosen Sunday because the weather was sunny. Cold, but sunny.
The kids were out of their heads with excitement, running around and hardly giving themselves any time to have a proper look.
Until we came to the elephants’ place. By then papa elephant seemed to be sick and tired of people watching him, so he grabbed mud and threw it at us over and over. So funny.
On the other hand, I can imagine the animals get fed up with it at times. Being in cages. Seeing all those people gazing at them. Poor things.
But for the children it was great. And the day ended well with a dolphin show. What a nice day!
