on days like this I'm sooo bored.....

and what a day it was, last saturday was a day to stay in bed, it was dark, grey, wet and miserable and just on a day like this I had a "meeting" at Burgers Zoo in Arnhem. four times a year we planned a "business family-day" somewhere in Holland and yes, this time a Zoo ;-)

fortunately a Zoo with plenty of space to "hide". It has a "indoor" jungle, ocean and desert under one roof all connected to each other for several hours of fun and education.

But...when it's raining outside it's getting crowded by the minute inside !!! So, at the time it stopped pouring I protected the camera against the drizzling rain and started to walk towards to outdoor safari along the lions and leopards.. maybe, maybe I can catch one of these big cats and yes, luckely me, two of them were in sight and looked very very bored, I think they had the same idea about the weather as I had..... lay down, open your eyes when it's really necessary and try to catch some sleep when you can....

Next time I'll plan my Zoo-day by my selves, that's for sure !!!!
