A Trip to the Zoo

On the 15th of July 2012, my classmates and I had a field trip. At eight thirty, we went down the stairs and assembled at the carpark behind the school. We saw three buses for three classes. We got on the first bus and the other two classes were on the other buses. We departed at 9:30am. We saw a sign that said "Zoo", and so we followed the sign. Since I was behind with my friends and with all air conditioners around me, I could see the two buses that were far, far away. My friends said that the two buses were "Monster buses".

After half an hour, we arrived at the zoo. Our teachers bought tickets for my whole class and also for the two other classes at the ticket counters. We went into the monkey part of the zoo. We saw monkeys climbing on the trees, some were chattering among each other. Then, the other part of the monkeys were just scratching themselves. The zookeeper gave bananas for their lunch. In a flash, the monkeys finished them all. Next, we went to the parrots' zone. Once my friend said "Hello", the parrot replied "Hello". We kept playing with the parrots. I was sure that it was fun playing with it. Next, we went to the hippopotamus' place. They were floating in the clear, blue water. They were really, really dirty on the upper side. Finally, we went to the tigers' habitat. We felt safe because there was a round surface of a glass like a wall that surrounded the fierce but friendly-looking tigers. There were descriptions about tigers. We left the zoo.

We went on the bus. It was three o'clock. We were all starving from hunger. Our teachers asked us to have our teatime. We reached our school and all our parents were waiting. We went home and we all had the smiling faces. It was really a memorable day.
