Besides strolling around town with P, we took a trip to the Toronto Zoo to see some pandas. Our first measure of order was to try out one of the newest popsicle trends, Banana Pops. While eating the popsicle/ice cream hybrid, the outer peels can be stretched out and pulled down as if a real banana was being peeled. It was quite the entertaining snack but regardless of its merit, its taste didn't live up to the fun.
On our path to see the pandas, we stumbled upon this adorable arctic fox. It happened to be asleep at the time we were visiting so I only managed to snap a photo of it cutely passed out on the ground. We quickly made our way to the pandas only to have one of them waddle around and then settle into a seemingly posed position. He stayed that way for at least 10 minutes while the everyone snapped away at him like paparazzi to a celebrity.
The other panda was not so much prepared. He was passed out over top of a waterfall with his face wedged in between a tree branch and a rock. Talk about the perfect life.
We finished the afternoon with a visit to a tea house for lunch which mostly resulted in me finally having the opportunity to try shaved ice for the first time. Flavor of choice? Why, mango of course!
