Sunday marked Georgie’s first time at the zoo…and therefore our first time at a zoo as parents! It was such a fun day spent with friends and feeding a giraffe. I’ve seen one up close before but I forget how beautiful these animals are. Truly astonishing. I actually think all the adults were giddier than the kids. The Pafos Zoo used to be just a bird park. Definitely worth the visit but as a zoo it is a must-see. I will admit I am torn at the idea of zoos and keeping animals caged up. They always look miserable. But my feelings don’t run as strong as they do about feckin circuses! Such cruelty! Anyhoo, here, you get the chance to see all sorts of furry, feathered friends. And some not. If I had to pick a low of the day it would be the heat! Seriously! Despite applying to myself and Georgie a whole tube of sunscreen, I still got red sore shoulders. Thinking of it now though, I must admit I enjoyed the walking and sweating. It meant I was burning off some serious pizza calories. So before you get to see any big cats, there’s a cute little traditional Cyprus house set up complete with cooking utensils and chickens and rabbits in the front yard! The highlight of my day was, without a doubt, the moment Georgie reached out and fed the giraffe a leaf. I melted.
