I visited Jeff in DC for a couple days in January 2009, and we made a quick visit to the National Zoo. My favorite animal to watch was the red panda, who struck a nice pose for me:
We also enjoyed watching the giant pandas putter about and eat:
The last photo was sort of a happy accident, which i have edited to truly capture the eating frenzy that is the life of a giant panda.
If you’re in DC, and especially if you’re anywhere near the zoo, you should stop by Sticky Fingers Bakery. This place is amazing. They have delicious vegan baked goods, vegan soft serve ice cream, and vegan chili cheese dogs!
