I’m enthralled. Joanna, my daughter, just started going to school. Just imagine how teary-eyed I was when I first dropped her off at school. Can anyone relate to this?
Recently, she experienced her first-ever visit to the zoo with her teachers and class friends. This is her fourth time to visit a zoo but this one is special because she went with her new friends.
I’m sharing some snap shots of her memorable event. Please enjoy. 🙂
I’m grateful to God for giving my daughter this privilege to see His wonderful creation. As I have mentioned, my camera ran out out of battery so I missed taking photos of other animals such as lions, tigers, different types of birds and so on.
I’m also glad that God enabled me to meet other mothers from Joanna’s school too! It is my prayer that God will use me to share with them the gospel in God’s time. For now, I can only pray for their salvation.
Anyway, just a few comments about Bangladesh National Zoo.
- The entrance fee is very cheap. It’s only 30 taka or about $0.375
- There’s a variety of animals available for viewing.
- The place is very clean.
- Signboards are quite informative.
- If you are going to have a picnic there, there are water tanks available for washing your hands, plates and glasses.
- There are wide and breezy spaces where you can lay your picnic mats down.
- Food is available for purchase inside the zoo.
- Visitors are allowed to bring their own food.
- Vendors keep handing balloons and other toys for sale to the kids. Kids end up persuading their parents to buy what are not so necessary.
- Foreigners might find it hard to understand what are written on the name boards of animals if they are not familiar with Bangla.
OVERALL: The place is a wonderful place for picnic and enjoyment. It’s also an excellent place to see God’s handwork. Isn’t it amazing how animals declare the glory of God?
