We went to the Xiangjiang Safari Park in Guangzhou for Ryan's birthday today. It's like a zoo that also has a safari section.
Rita, one of our patient coordinators, ordered Ryan a complimentary cake for his birthday. It was waiting for us when we got back from the Xiangjiang Safari Park in Guangzhou.
Ryan REALLY wanted to ride an elephant. He had a great time.
A cute baby orangutan.
Chinese to English translation isn't exact. Are they telling us to "carefully slip" instead of "Be careful--slippery"? :)
The elephant exhibit
A funny koala bench.
They had a "Safari on Wheels" in the park. The train "engine" had a Mercedes logo on the front. :)
13 candles! Ryan picked out the new hoodie at the Safari Park. He really liked the tigers there.
Just a few gifts that we packed. He picked out the Halo action figure set at the LAX airport while we were waiting for our flight to China. He's had to wait until now to open it. :)
The elephant would squirt water in the air and get a banana for it. They hid the bananas under Ryan's seat.
Ryan thought this was a pretty funny statue.
White tigers. Every 30 minutes they would do the "White Tiger Show." They would send out raw chicken for them on a wire and they would leap out to grab it and fall into the water. It was amazing!
Ryan had a hotdog on a stick for lunch and a Sprite.
A baby elephant.
This statue was at the exit of the Zoo.
