It must be because I´ve been eating a lot of this while enjoying my stay there:
arroz do pato ( fried rice with chorizos and shredded duck)
It´s so delicious, I can eat this everyday. Even the hubz approve! ;) Anyway, as my face got healthier and my body got heavier, I kept myself entertained at the Lisbon Oceanarium in Parque das Naçoes. Since it was so hot and there was a lot of walking involved (as usual), wearing something light and flowy is a must and also to partially cover the.. eherm.. flaws. ;)
The penguins were more than happy to see lots of visitors, they kept flapping their wings.
These colorful ¨daisy like¨ aquatic plants are called sea anemones. They´re so pretty but predatory at the same time.
This one´s a sea dragon. It´s my first time seeing this kind of aquatic creature. I´m used to seeing a sea horse. This little darling can camouflage himself well. Look at those ¨plantlike leaves, he blends in well among the planktons in the underworld and so he´s safe from the bigger predatory fishes.
Now this is the most popular fish in the huge aquarium of the Oceanarium. This is a tropical fish and it´s GIGANTIC in size. Really. It´s called the Sunfish or Mola mola.
Below is an almost perfect recreation of a tropical paradise. For a few minutes, I thought that I was vacationing in my beloved tropical laland until we changed continents ( in the Oceanarium, of course). There are a lot of things to show you about this place, a separate post is in the works. Stay tuned.
To cap of my Oceanarium trip, here´s a customary photo op with Vasco, the cutesy mascot. We gave the whole trip a two thumbs up! :)
