Re: Frankfurt: Not Just for Business

George G. ·
I liked your description of the Rubens exhibit that tied together his inspirational objects and sketches. Adds so much more to an art exhibit instead of just hanging a painting with the title. I also fell into the trap of not visiting Frankfurt when I only lived about 20 miles away for about six years. I did really enjoy the Frankfurt Zoo and their Christmas Market.

Re: Where in the World is Gumbo? 7.8

WorkerBee ·
It does look like a puggle. Of course that could be either a baby platypus or a baby echidna. In either case it is likely to be in Australia. My guess is that is an echidna. Since there is a breeding program for echidnas at the Perth zoo it could be there. My guess for the location, however, is the Australia Zoo, former home base of the late Steve Irwin, the crocodile hunter.

Re: Sleepless in Cologne... Sea lions and zoo neighbors

George G. ·
My wife and I visited this very attractive zoo with pleasing fountains and gardens. I don't recall hearing the roar of sea lions, but I did get a candid photo when a pelican snapped his bill at my wife Diane when she ventured to close to their property. While many attractions can be closed on Sundays, we always looked for a chance to visit a European zoo.

Re: July 17, 2019: A Stop at the Chocolate Museum, Cologne

George G. ·
Lindt is our absolute favorite chocolate in this house ! Cologne is the first place I ever touched down in a chartered US Army plane back in the Cold War days because Frankfurt was fogged in. Not sure how Koln got altered in English to a Cologne naming. Also went there years later to their wonderful zoo and a cold bottle of the local Kolsch beer.

Re: A Winter Visit to Dresden and Leipzig

Janine ·
Well Dresden and Leipzig pretty nice cities to visit. In Dresden the former Frauenkirche got rebuild which got totally destroyed by the bombing attack if the Second World War. Also the side on the river Elbe invites in long walks and beautiful areas. Especially the sights like Zwinger and the Semper Oper are worth to visit. Leipzig is the City I come from and it has changed a lot after the reunion. The inner city is not that big but it has a lot if history. Sebastian Bach and his famous...

Re: More Life at the Edge: What’s in a Name?

DrFumblefinger ·
It's an interesting topic, PortMoresby (and I always assumed you'd named yourself after the New Guinea city). We are given names by our parents that some of us change but most of us keep for a lifetime as part of our identity. But an alias is clearly of our own choosing and it makes you think sometimes about what's behind that person's choice? Equally interesting to me are the avatars some folks use, or don't choose (please, if you have an "empty head"avatar, load a photo into it!) Your...

Re: Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, Manitoba, Canada. One of the buildings inside the fort complex

I'll add this fort to the To Do List - my husband loves old forts! And we're passing through Manitoba on our way back to Toronto in late August or early September. Is there anything else to do in Manitoba? I heard the zoo is really good.

Re: A Day at the Zoo: San Diego, California

IslandMan ·
A well written and informative blog piece Dr F...I agree with you that zoos should not be abandoned. There is a place for them especially when it comes to protecting endangered species. The San Diego Zoo certainly looks like a great place to visit and the variety of animals there is a regular Noah's Ark (good to see a few Aussie Koalas). You've captured some amazing shots in the gallery too.

Re: A Day at the Zoo: San Diego, California

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks IslandMan! Probably the rarest animal at the zoo is the California Condor. Only the San Diego and Los Angeles zoos exhibit these birds and were instrumental in saving them from extinction. With only a few dozen birds left in the wild, a controversial decision was made several decades ago to capture them all and place the remaining birds in these two zoos for a captive breeding program. They now number several hundred and are slowly being re-introduced into the wild, with limited...

Re: A Day at the Zoo: San Diego, California

DrFumblefinger ·
Thank you, Andre! This was the third zoo I've ever seen giant pandas in. And by far it was the best one. They had two pandas, in separated but adjoining enclosures (one male, one female). Both were sitting there eating bamboo and seemed to enjoy watching the throng of people walking by them. It was as though the zoo's visitors were there to entertain the pandas, rather than the other way around. As for bears, I'm always happier to see them in a zoo than on a hiking trail in the Rockies...
