Another thing we enjoyed at the zoo was the assortment of trash cans. There were many and it seemed they were used; there was very little trash scattered on the grounds. Elsewhere in India that is not always the case. My theory is that littering helps keep the sweepers employed. Having someone else cleaning up after one's litter seems to be an ingrained cultural trait.
After going back to the hotel for a bit of a rest (remember, this was my first day post-flight), we got back on the Metro and went to the Janpath Tibetan shops to see Doma. Dan had been there a couple of days before and told them I'd be coming on Thursday about 5:00. Doma doesn't come into the shop all the time, especially in the winter, and we wanted to be sure to see her. She is doing pretty well, although finds it difficult to get up and down from her stool. While we were there several long-time customers came by to buy things.
|No comment, obviously|
|The hippo enclosure was good - 4-5 hippos enjoying the water|
|We didn't see any live monkeys; from experience, we knew their cages were awful|
|Sorry, no live penguins in this non-polar zoo|
|Didn't see any rabbits either, but it is nearly time for the Easter Bunny|
|We only saw 2 or 3 of these with numbers|
