Who are we
We are a family of 3 who took a break from our routine. Usually we live in Scotland but February to the end of July 2011 we were on the road in North America for 6 months. We are Mark (also known as Dad), Rachel (also known as Mum... and a whole bunch of other names... my usual at-home blog is here) and little h (10/11 years of age during the trip).

Arctic conditions, tropical rainforests... all in one day
So, yesterday we went to Toronto Zoo. It was pretty amazing. Sure, on a snowy February day a lot of the outdoor African animals were nowhere to be seen but there was so much else to observe and it was all so well-designed and (best for me) it was all fairly free of human crowds (it being a Monday in midwinter...). Highlights were the Tundra section (Arctic wolves and foxes and h's favourite 3 majestic polar bears), the Sumatran orangutans and the Western Lowland gorillas but it was all pretty spectacular. Mark took a lot of photos but the best of them (still quite a lot!) can be seen here.
