Thursday Nextreme

Mandy and Liz discuss the merits of 'The Eyre Affair' in a forest.
Greetings from the world's largest indoor rainforest!

Liz and I figured the only thing more exciting than exploring the Asian, African and South American rainforests at one shot would be to explorethem all while reading The Eyre Affair.:) So, we packed up our book and went to the Lied Jungle at Omaha, Nebraska's Henry Doorly Zoo. We perused chapters while crossinga suspended rope bridge, standing behind a couple of waterfalls, crawling through a maze of large roots and looking for exotic animals (sorry, no dodos).Amonkeyor twowatched us with interest and the tapirs...they slept.

All in all it was a fun adventure and ended up being the best part of our zoo experience. :)
