Write Up:
It was a perfect fall day for a trip to the National Zoo. About half the group metroed our way to the zoo where we hooked up with the rest of the group. Our first stop was the Panda exhibit. Unfortunately, it was too soon to see the baby panda, Tai Shin, but we did get to see Mom, Mei Xiang, and Dad, Tian Tian. We saw a great show by the elephants. And of course there were lions and tigers and bears - oh my (actually, no bears). We ended our day at Nanny O'Brien's for burgers and such.
