And I was in the zoo with my mother, when she was here, took some photos there also. For some reason, many birds ... o.O Unfortunatly we only had a little less than 3 hours in there and wanted to see two exhibitions in the zoo as well. So I didn't really have much time actually taking pictures or waiting for the animals to take a striking pose or whatever. And we didn't have time to go to the Aquarium at all, which is a shame. I really need to go there again at some point, I really want to see it again. Oh well. Enjoy! :)

Actually, this fellow wasn't in any cage, but flew around freely. She belongs to a flock of birds which are well known in cologne, they are called rose-ringed parakeets (Halsbandsittiche). There are over a thousand in this city by now. Noone really know where they come from, it's just an urban legend that they escaped the zoo. Originally they are from central africa and india.

And last but no leat, humans in their natural habit? Don't ask me, I have no idea. I guess they are homeless. I have to admit I was fascinated by how they arranged everything just to look similar to an outside living room.

When we got home, my mother and I went to sit a bit in the sun just outside of a restaurant. While enjoying our coke/coffee, a little girl was walking by, obviously carrying pizza home which she just had gotten in the pizzaria around the corner. She stopped to talked to people she obviously knew. I don't know why, but she only wore one shoe :D

Die bonner Legende zu den Halsbandsittichen ist, dass ein Haustier-Päärchen entflog und sich dann fleißig weitervermehrt hat :)
