A couple of weeks ago, Mischa’s school had their annual field trip. As the usual, we accompanied her, and this time we only had two itineraries (unlike last year when we had four). The first stop was Avilon Zoo, which was quite far (located in the mountains of Rodriguez, Rizal) so we kinda lost a lot of time for travel.
The zoo occupies a wide stretch of land, owing to the various recreations of the habitats of its residents. We had a sizable ground to cover in just under two hours so the tour guide assigned to us (we were divided according to buses we rode in) kept hurrying us up. It was a little irritating. First, we were panting as we went from area to area, and second, the kids didn’t have much time to look around and appreciate all the animals they were seeing. Sayang! They would have enjoyed it a whole lot more if there was more time. Mischa, for one, loved seeing the animals up close and personal!
