Jer feeding a pygmy hippo, Bangkok
Our first day in Bangkok was a Monday and we knew we'd be jetlagged, so we decided to have a leisurely day in Dusit Park. Unfortunately, we didn't know that much of the park is closed Mondays. Fortunately, the Dusit Zoo was open and quite charming, with a good variety of Southeast Asia fauna. At the keeper's urging, we fed the pygymy hippos, who open wide if you tap their snouts!
