    After spending a good deal of the day configuring our phones, it was time to start adventuring. Unable to squeeze the zoo into our itinerary yesterday, we made it our first priority to visit the zoo in Euno.

We decided to go on a walking tour of a neighbourhood a couple subway stops from our hotel.
