We were watching the lions but mtoto was unimpressed. “Mountains” he cried, meaning he wanted to watch the fountains in the old penguin enclosure. “Water from hole in the ground”, he said excitedly to our friend.


We had a similar experience on Sunday. Traveling in a boat on the Thames, mtoto was more interested in the pipe discharging water from the boat than the fabulous views of the riverside. Well, he is a mtoto after all!
