rain

We visited genova way back on february 19th and 20th. :)

"The Aquarium of Genoa is the largest aquarium in Italy and the second largest in Europe. Built for Expo 92, the Aquarium of Genoa is an educational, scientific and cultural centre. The Aquarium of Genoa’s architecture was developed collaboratively by Renzo Piano of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, and by Peter Chermayeff leading a design team at Cambridge Seven Associates"

Pasha, James... you officially do not have to take me to the Toronto zoo anymore...

Highlights:
- Jellyfish!! Sharks!
- I touched a stingray it was very unpleasant.
- I tried to make penguin friends but I got snubbed
- Upon entry we had to take a photo with the aquariums mascot...
