One of the greatest parts of the Butler D.C. program is that the residence is literally a 5 minute walk to the National Zoo! An even greater perk is that entrance into the zoo is free! You can literally walk around at any hour you like for absolutely free! Needless to say, I’ve been multiple times.
Last week, after working on assignments in the library by my apartment, I decided to check out the zoo on my way back. It was a bit chilly but that didn’t stop me! I grabbed some Starbucks and checked it out! One of the first little furry animals I saw was a little red fox chewing on some leaves. It was extremely precious. I slightly debated stealing it!
After I made friends with the fox, I ventured over to the new panda exhibit. There’s a new baby panda at the zoo named Bao Bao and I was the first of my D.C. friends to see her! She was strutting her stuff with her mom and I had to fight my way to the front of the crowd to see her! It was definitely a successful visit!
