After the Openluchtmuseum, we headed for my friend Carla's house. Carla and I have been friends since I first came into Young Women in 1992. We have done many fun things together, cried over ex boyfriends, traveled to fun places by train, and of course gotten into general trouble. But now that we're both grown up and responsible with families of our own, we still like to get together and relive the good ol' times, and create new memories.
On Tuesday we went to the Apenheul, which is a zoo with only monkeys. Not only are there dozens of different kinds of monkeys, but several of them roam free among the tourists. And the park has invisible bounderies of where they can and can't go.
Carla has a really sweet little Chihuahua dog. I've been thinking about getting a dog for our family, but have been turned off by the idea of long walks, bags of dog food, hairy floors, and vet bills. I also want a dog that can walk next to my bike, so they can get their exercise in, while I take the kids to school. Unbelievably Carla's Chihuahua can keep up with her bike. And they are small, and don't smell bad, don't shed, and are easy to take with you, or find babysitters for. I haven't decided whether I want to get a dog, but I'm sold on the idea of a chihuahua if we do decide to.
