Hippy Hippo

No formal zoo in HK but we do have some hippos in the park. A happy family here and if you look closer you'll find the hippy hippo with a flower on its head ;-). By the way, the green plants in the background are lotus leaves, when dried, they give a pleasant fragrance and are very often used to make rice dumplings.

Wonderful pics. They look like stepping stones. Question: why do I need to scroll down quite far to find your photos? Is it my computer or something on your end?

I bet you didn't have any trouble getting the hippos to hold still. :)

Again, nice photo.

That's interesting information about the lotus leaves. Never thought of eating them.

HI, Kate, I don't what the problem is cos' I've tried at other computers and it seems normal...does anybody else have this problem?

Is Kris the only one who noticed the reflection? I like it too.

And I forgot to mention that wrap the food in the lotus leaves and cook it, but we don't eat the leaves...

Thanks for the footprints
