I visited the San Diego Zoo in 1986, so comments about the zoo are perhaps not timely enough to be relevant. But this zoo was one of the very first on a two week Contiki tour, which had started out of Los Angeles. I'd met a rather attractive lady on the tour shortly before we went to the zoo. So, during the zoo visit, I stuck with her a little bit. We enjoyed the zoo very much- and in the end, there were just the two of us- having lost track of time- making a mad dash back to the bus to make it back, only just in time before the very strict time which had been laid out in concrete. This being late became a bit of a tradition- this very attractive person became my wife. I had not realised that the Mexican tradition on time and appointments is very laid back as compared with Australia- and especially as compared with the very punctual traditions I had inherited.
