I spend my Spring vacation meeting up with friends basically every day. While we did ordinary things like going to karaoke and shopping most of the time, one day we went to Ueno zoo. I must say I was very disappointed. Ueno zoo is known for its fantastic Panda exhibit which lots of people talk about.
I was really looking forward to seeing a live Panda again but when I arrived I saw a bit sign at the gate that said there are no more Pandas (apparently the last one died not long ago). Least we could take our picture with a huge fake panda. We weren't in much of a mood to look at other animals after such a disappointment with the Pandas but we decided to walk around anyways since we were already there. We watched the monkeys, reptiles, zebras and pretty much everything else. It actually ended up being quite a bit of fun and the Panda problem has now become a big joke amongst my friends and I.
