Once upon a time, when I woke up in the morning I would immediately go to the shower, and after washing I’d get changed then I would eat my breakfast.
One day we were getting ready for our trip to the zoo, and the bus was waiting for us, after getting on I ran through the bus excitedly because it was the first time I went to the zoo. We arrived at the zoo and I asked my parents, ’’ This is the zoo?’’ they replied, “Yes, it is beautiful with many kinds of animals.’’
When we got inside, snakes were the first things I saw, they were yellow and the black snakes. The caretakers of the zoo asked, “Do you want to put the yellow snake around your neck?’’
“Maybe,” I said.
’’Oh my god!” I yelled as he placed the big snake on my shoulders.
My parents took some photos of me and my brothers, and they said that I was not scared, but, my brothers were and I was only five-years-old.
’’I was not scared? I was shaking and nervous,’’ I said.
The next animal I saw was a giant turtle and I rode on its shell but, I was not scared of it because I think they are good, my parents took more photos. The other animals were monkeys and they climbed a tree to eat bananas.
We had lunch at the zoo cottage and enjoyed the food, then it was time to go home and we rode on the bus. Once we got home we went to bed happily.
