Some Tongue / Un Poco De Lengua

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

WHEN WE MOVED to San Diego, California in 1993, one of the first things we did was join the Zoological Society. That gave us access to the zoo — in Balboa Park within minutes of our home — and the Wild Animal Park (now the Safari Park), about a 40-minute drive north. A very special benefit that came with our premiere membership (it was one of our favorite charities) was free tickets to the Wild Animal Park's "Photo Caravan." One year, we took San Geraldo's parents in an open truck to feed the animals on the "African Plain." While looking for photos of Christmases past, look what I found!

CUANDO NOS MUDAMOS a San Diego, California en 1993, una de las primeras cosas que hicimos fue unirnos a la Sociedad Zoológica. Eso nos dio acceso al zoo — en el Parque Balboa a pocos minutos de nuestra casa — y al Parque de Animales Salvajes (ahora Parque Safari), a unos 40 minutos en coche hacia el norte. Un beneficio muy especial que vino con nuestra membresía de estreno (fue una de nuestras obras de caridad favoritas) fue billetes gratuitos para la "Caravana de Fotos" del Parque de Animales Salvajes. Un año, llevamos a los padres de San Geraldo en un camión abierto para alimentar a los animales en la "Llanura Africana". Mientras busco fotos de navideñas pasadas, ¡miren lo que encontré!

NOT MY 18-INCH TONGUE.
NO MI LENGUA DE 45 CM.

      Amazing places. We started at basic membership and every 8 months, they enticed us into upgrading.

      I can't believe I wasn't at all turned off by that 18-inch tongue and its 18-inches of saliva. It was an amazing experience.

      Two different giraffes. I fed the adult male. That was his head.

  8. Cool! I enjoyed the Wild Animal Park back in the '90s (we were probably there on the same day, right?) when Ken and I visited. I became a member of the Monterey Bay Aquarium back in the day for the same reasons: good charity and member access! But I never kissed a sea lion.

      I loved the Monterey Bay Aquarium, too! It would be so much fun to see videos of these places and discover ourselves standing right next to each other.
