Yunnan Wild Animals Park

The original plan was to head to the park after church services and lunch. However, after lunch, a sudden cold front moved in, so we needed to make a detour back to the apartment to gather up jackets. So we got a later start than we wanted.

The park was a bit of a disappointment, as it was more like the zoo, but at least some of the animals were in more of a natural setting than as seen in the Kunming Zoo. The grounds were well kept, with many pines and wonderful views of the mountains. And the kids always love to see any kind of animal, so the day wasn't a total dud!

We saw little foxes...

and big cats.

E. likes elephants because they begin with "E", just like her!

We ended the afternoon at our favorite "it's a dive, but so delicious" dumpling place. We're waiting on our fourth order to come to the table!
