At work, I am part of a national group with group members in several major metropolitan cities. Our group was given a recreational day off with the assignment of "be a tourist in your city". The group members in Houston decided to visit the Houston Zoo. Sheryl, Melinda, Byron and I met at the Houston Zoo entrance to begin out safari adventure.
