Two of my main goals for the trip to Australia were to hold a koala and hug a kangaroo.
Goal number one was killed when we found out koalas belong to a worker's union [no joke] and can only work, i.e. be held, a certain amount of hours each week. Healesville Sanctuary outside Melbourne is a no holding zoo. Sad day.
BUT we did get to feed and pet kangaroos.
How I made it through this without crying with happiness is beyond me.
|Their names were Crystal and Kiki|
|This look says it all.|
|Yes, we were holding hands.|
|Oh haaay sexy kangaroo.|
|Benny the koala|
