Wind Storm/Tempete de vent

Posted on 2/23/2008 by Myriam Moret

Yesterday was a sunny day with 15°C and I visited half of Ueno Zoo. The zoo is HUGE and closes @ 5pm so I decided to leisurley visit the other half another day and admission is cheap like borsch. I haven't seen the Ligers, who apparently have been traded to Everland in South Korea for aye-aye!! Whatever! Aye-aye(s) (Is there a plural for that word?) Anyway even the ouch-ouch weren't there because the mama just gave birth to some little boo-boo.

Appart from my immense deception at not seing the ligers it was a nice day and the zoo is not half bad. Sure the Polar Bears are nut cases but generaly, animals look healthy and they have very large pens.

Today was a different day altogether. We had litteraly a wind storm with winds pushing you to run or holding you back and forcing you to walk with your body bent forward. Even the trains refused to cooperate!


Hier par une journée magnifique, 15°C, ensoleillé, j'ai visité la moitié du zoo de Ueno. Le zoo est immense et ferme à 17h je me suis donc réservé le loisir de visiter la seconde moitié, mollo relax, une autre journée et l'admission est pas cher. Je n'ai pas vu les Ligers qui, apparament, ont été échangé à Everland en Corée (Sud) contre des aye-aye!! N'importe quoi! Des aye-aye(s) (ça va ou le pluriel dans ce nom là?) En tout cas.. même les ouch-ouch étaient pas dans leur enclos parce que la mama viens d'avoir des petits "ayoye donc!"

A part pour ma déception immense à ne pas voir les Ligers, ce fût une belle journée et le zoo n'est pas trop moche. Bien sur les ours polaires sont fous à lier mais en général les animaux ont des enclos immenses et ont l'air en santé.

Les journées se suivent mais ne se ressemble pas... Aujourd'hui il fait littéralement une tempête de vent. Une marche de 5 minutes dehors prends des allures d'expédition, avec le vent qui soit nous pousse à presque courrir ou a marcher plié en 2 vers l'avant, même les trains refusent de coopérer!

Welcome to Ueno Zoo!

Bienvenue au Zoo de Ueno!



Ling Ling the panda bear. He is 21, he was left without a mate when Tong Tong died in 2000 but has spent some time in Mexico with another lovely lady in the hopes that they would breed.

Ling Ling le panda. Il a 21 ans et est veuf depuis la mort de Tong Tong en 2000. Par contre il a passé quelques mois avec une demoislle au Mexique dans l'espoir d'une rare reproduction en captivité.



Some school kids visiting the zoo. All the groups wear different colored outfits so they can be identified. The pink hats and the short shorts were the best!

Des enfants visitant le zoo. Tous les groupes on un habit d'une certaine couleur pour les identifier. Les casquettes roses et les shorts de course remportent la palme!

Some very noble looking eagles and a palm tree that I thought would really piss you off :p

Des aigles à l'air noble et un palmier, juste histoire de vous faire suer un peu :p



The peacock was showing off!

Le paon qui fait son show!



The infamous "squatto". The name says it all, you squat face toward the elevated area and do what you have to do. You flush like for any other toilet. Uncomfortable and weird, I'm always scared to pee on my pants and it migh explain why the Japanese are so found of skirts :s

Le fameux "squatto". Tu t'installe en petit bonhomme face au bord sur-élevé et fais ce que tu as a faire. Ca se flush comme une toilette. C'est inconfortable et bizarre et j'ai toujours peur de pisser sur mes jeans. Ça pourrais expliquer pourquoi les Japonnaises portent autant de jupes.

The seal (aka the Fishy Dog) with it's best profile and the rare sun bear. The sun bear is really small, 4ft in length and less than 150lb it has a yellow patch on the chest.

L'otarie nous montrant son meilleur profil et l'Ours Malais, très rare. L'Ours Malais est petit, environ 4pieds en longueur et moins de 150lb. Sa taille et la marque jaune en forme de croissant sur sa poitrine sont ses caractéristique principales.

2 of my coolest pics of the day. The lion and the gorilla. The gorillas were my favourite to watch, their behaviour is extraordinary alike to humans even in their facial expressions. The lion was so calm and peaceful, I can totaly understand why he's the King of the Jungle.

2 de mes meilleures photos de la journée. Le lion et le gorille. Les gorilles sont mes préférés, leur comportement est incroyablement "humain", même les expressions du visage. Le lion étais très calme et paisible, je comprends pourquoi c'est le Roi de la jungle.



The meerkats were a joyous bunch, only this one was siting on a rock posing for the crowd.

Les suricats étais un peu sur-excités, celui-ci étais le seul a poser calmement pour la foule sur sa roche.
