Washington's National Zoo: They've got pandas there

Two weeks ago Little Marathon Pundit and I traveled to Washington DC.

On a drizzly Wednesday, we visited the National Zoo, located in fashionable Northwest Washington.

Although there is a lot of construction going on in the zoo--the Asian Trail exhibit is being built--it's still a great urban zoo.

Yes, we saw the giant pandas. All three of them. Unlike the San Diego Zoo, the panda area at the National Zoo is much more conducive to actually seing the pandas. But like the world-famous zoo, there are usually lines to see the pandas, and on a busy day, such as on a weekend day with good weather, visitors to zoo may go home disappointed because they didn't see those adorable black-and-whites.
