One of the fun things that I do here is work as a private French teacher for ex-pats. Lucky me I have the coolest students who like to go on outings to practice their vocabulary!
A few weeks ago we learned about des animaux and a group of us set out to the Ménagerie du Jardin des plantes to practice naming animals. It had been so long since I’d been to a zoo that I’d forgotten how fun they can be! Highlights included two apes kissing, seeing raccoons in captivity, the hedgehog exhibit, and hanging out with four teenage boys all afternoon. They keep me young.
