Anyway Vienna redeemed itself with its beautiful zoo and my wonderful friend Lisa and her lovely husband Heinz.
After a day off of sightseeing...just resting and going to the Nasch market (which was wonderful) I decided I needed to put a smile back on my face and animals always do that so off I went....
The zoo is behind Schonbrunn palace so I wandered through there (I did not go in as I saw the long line and decided "no way") which was lovely.
So here we go on a visit to the zoo. I am very picky about which zoos I visit..it's the oldest zoo in Europe but seems to be well run. And you have to love a place that has koalas and pandas all the time so you don't have to line up for a million years to see them. So here they are - my favourite critters in the zoo...not a huge variety but my faves. Not my best zoo photos either as didn't bring my decent zoom lens but they will do.

|Terrible photo through glass but love the monkey grooming the deer (well okay looking for good stuff to eat in the deer's coat)|
|The baby lemurs were hilarious jumping all over the place.|
