Matt and I headed off to the Koelner Zoo on the metro. It was lovely: very green, glass exclosures. There was a big family of elephants (about 16), 3 hippos who were having fun in the water and making loud noises and showing off their large teeth. Matt loved the orangatangs (the babies were playing) and the cheetahs (who were prowling up and down). A flock of flaming pink flamingo's and long legged ducks.

Hopefully Gav's ALDI baggage scales will weigh ...
We had a couple of walks in the Eifel National Park punctuated by a picnic lunch. Our first walk was along a trail path for the disabled, nice and wide, smooth and no gradient. But it did go to a vantage point where we could look out to the lakes that are part of this 144 km square park. The area was original forested with beech trees but other species were introduced over the years. Now they are trying to return to the native beech forest.
