The London Zoo

For a while I have been wanting to go to the Zoo in London, even in San Diego if I had a chance. I want to see a bunch of funny animals roaming about and taking a look at these amazing creatures. And I have recently had the urge to see Penguins, and I know they have at the London Zoo.

I haven’t been to London Zoo for at least 5 to 8 years, I honestly can’t remember the last time I was there but I was really excited to go. Being winter I didn’t have high expectations but I had a lot of fun walking around seeing all these funny animals that couldn’t give a damn that I was staring at them, and some would stare back and walk up to me like those pink birds that I don’t even know what they were but they seemed friendly and walked funny. The owls were sound asleep when I got over to their section but one opened his eyes when I snapping pictures and looked really annoyed, owls really look like they are full of wisdom and have something smart to say, but I left them alone to continue with their sleep.

The penguins seemed to be having a lot of fun together and seagulls were annoying them and keep diving into the water. Some would swim closer to me because I was the only person there. The funniest bird I have seen yet is this furry looking chicken, I walked over to the kids section and some animals roam about like lamas, and I saw this chicken running around between peoples legs and he is big and very furry, strange chicken.

I kept on walking around to the different sections but not everything was open because it was winter but I loved it, London Zoo was a fun visit with all these animals. I especially enjoyed the parakeet that was annoyed at me and squawked a few times, makes me want a pet parakeet, he just looked so colorful and I bet would be an entertaining companion.

Burrad Lucas @ Falkland Islands

Burrad Lucas are two brothers how are very interested in photography and took it seriously around 2004. Their photographs and ideas are fantastic, I love their work and some amazing shots. They seem to love animal photography and they even came up with ingenious ideas to get up close and personal with some scary creatures without exposing themselves to danger. These photographs were of the Falkland Islands which is in the South Atlantic, and I just love Penguins and Seals. I always wished I could have a pet penguin but its very hard to find one. That rockhopper penguin looks like its about to smack the guy behind the camera.

Dogs in Athens


I had a quick trip to Greece for a day and half, with some meetings the first day and my flight back the next afternoon. So I took the oppurtunity to walk at night and snap pictures, and next morning to head to the Acropolis. There is a lot I have to say about Athens and Greeks, I wondering why I haven’t come here before, but what astounded me were the dogs. There are so many dogs and stray dogs in Athens, and a huge majority of them are treated very nicely. Take a look at this full list here of the best CBD products to treat your pets.

Greeks are very humane to most animals, but they are very friendly to dogs. At first I thought a lot of dogs belonged to certain people but that wasn’t the case, these dogs would just tag along with people for a bit then head back. I saw this at the parlaiment building, and then again when I was heading up to the Acropolis the next morning. Its a beautiful city with so much to see, so many areas, and very nice people. All these dogs were very nice, you could easily approach them, some had collars and it seemed they were dogs of a certain location and people were nice to them, it was really nice to see that, there were a lot of jolly dogs.
