Northern Bald Ibis, critically endangered
Last week we visited a park called “Apenheul” (“Monkey Hill”) near Apeldoorn. This park has over 200 monkeys walking around freely between the visitors…unique in the world. The park is beautifully designed and maintained and it’s wonderful to see so many monkeys walking and running about freely in very large areas! Besides numerous kinds of monkeys, there are also other animals, mainly birds, and some of them are quite rare (see pictures above). While monkeying around, we were taken by surprise by the rain… a massive cloudburst (yes, that’s Petra you hear as she’s getting the giggles to keep from crying:-)) which chased all of the visitors out of the park instantly! We had forgotten to check the weather forecast for that day and area…so unprofessional…:-)
Rain or No Rain?? That’s the question. (in Holland anyway)
Here are two sites where most Dutch people check the “weer”…”weather” on a daily basis and before they go anywhere:
Good for your Dutch practice too!
