Saturday 8th November 2014
Took Erika to Hiroshima Zoo in the daytime. In the evening Chie and I went out, leaving Chie's parents to babysit, and found a place serving vegetarian okonomiyaki.

A giraffe demonstrating how impractical their long legs are.
Erika on my shoulders to get a better view of the giraffes.
There was a place where you could pet a guinea pig. As always Erika seemed very interested at a safe distance...
...but din't like getting up close.
Surprisingly Chie went into the aviary.
A rather bad tempered lion. I really hope that glass holds.
Chie's Mum and Dad.
Nice autumnal leaves.
Heading to the exit now.
We got the "Asstram" on the wahy back.
In the evening we got Chie's parents to babysit so me and Chie could have a night out by ourselves. We came to this okonomiyaki place which I'd found had a vegetarian menu.
