As it turns out St Louis has a lot of city pride. They have their own style of pizza (which is not likely to ever be heard outside of St Louis), rabid Cardinal fandom, and an insistence on calling Panera's "St Louis Bread Co." Pizza aside, there's a lot to be proud of. Turns out St Louis has a number of wonderful free museums including a pretty awesome zoo. They also have the City Museum which is not free, but totally worth the price of admission.
Here are a few photos of my trip. I realized Sam isn't in any of them, but you'll have to trust that he was there some of the time too.
|Friends on the zoo train. It went through some bizarrely long and narrow tunnels, but other than that a good time was had by all.|
|I didn't take many pictures of the animals, but I did get a nice one of these two adorable woodland creatures.|
|The City Museum!|
|This is representative of one of the tunnels I didn't really climb through. Heights I can do, but not tight spaces.|
|With friends at the bottom of the 10-story slide. Turns out the downside of a 10-story slide is mostly the walk to get to the top of it.|
