Trip to the Zoo

If you look closely you'll see a Capybara, the largest living rodent in the world. It looks like a giant beaver without the tail. Not very cute, but of course Zoe wanted to take it home.

The elephant is the color of the dirt here--terracotta.

We saw other Brazilians eating the fruit from these trees, so we had to try. The fruit was the size of a grape and tasted pretty good, although I couldn't describe it. There are so many fruit trees here with fruit I have never heard of before!
