MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 26–SEPTEMBER 1, 2019!

Hosted a summer bbq (forgot to season the burgers but other than that…), visited the Cold War Museum, as well as the Star Eco Station to meet all the exotic pets confiscated by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. And eating everything we can at the 626 Night Market.

Enjoy!

We were nearby and finally decided to stop by Star Eco Station. I passed by the building so many times before and was always so curious.

“The STAR Eco Station is an environmental science museum, an exotic wildlife rescue center, and a haven for endangered and illegally-trafficked exotic animals confiscated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The STAR Eco Station has grown tremendously since it began in 1997!”

Mae West! Was found over 20 years ago with plastic wrapped around her shell, affecting the way her shell was growing. And now she has a permanently indented shell 😦

Lulu is a bobcat that was found by a hiker as a baby and “rescued” accidentally. When the owner took it to the vet, they reported it to Star Eco Station and Lulu has lived here every since. She’s totally used to humans and living with people, so they said that putting her back int he wild would be hard for her without any cat instincts.

This really old fox is really old and another zoo called and asked if they could give him a place to sleep because the other foxes in the pen were annoying him too much. Cuz. He’s OLD and just wants to sleeeeep ahah.

The long fries are here! They are truly long!

Untitled
Untitled

But they sadly did taste a little lackluster, we think they were blended potato that were piped into a frier and not really the texture of a fry.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Poor Mae West. Humans can be awful sometimes. I miss seafood already and I’ve only been in North Macedonia a little over a month. I haven’t played Mario Kart in years, but I think I was always Peach or Daisy.

    When I was very young, I lived in Germany, and we could actually get East German shows via satellite. I remember some of those children shows!
