We took a trip with the family to the zoo in Kiev. After battling traffic for an hour in the city, we made it to the Zoopark joined by our new friends, Dave and Rayma (missionaries from Russia) and their two boys. Though not as elaborate as zoos in the States, the Kiev zoo has some interesting animals that you can get pretty close to. The kids really enjoyed touching the turtles and watching the elephant do a little dance for them. Micah was like a little kid when he saw a cool iguana and I personally loved the zebras. It was fun day, but as a family trip usually is, it was exhausting-especially after another 2 hours in the car to get home!
