The Zoo Trip

When I turned back in time…
I am 10 years old, and I am standing in the middle of the Auckland Zoo.
The tunnels are crowded with excitement and people are crawling.
The noise is as quiet as a mouse & sometimes I want to scream to break the silence.

Every minute there is a noise of something… Something about to happen.
It is nearly the end of the tunnel.
It is getting brighter now.
The tunnels are getting shorter & shorter by the minute like a candle burning away.
Everything is light & bright.  Fresh & clean & clear again.

Katie (Bella’s Mum) calls from the other side “Come on girls” and we run to join her.
We stand with our mouths wide open, while we are pointing at the Meerkats and continuously going “Ooh,”Trying to catch their attention, but it never works.

I love the Meerkats.

  1. Kia Ora, My name is Max from Waikowhai Primary School. I am a year six student in Room Hauraki in the Te Waka Ako cluster. This is amazing work, If only I could write like this. And I agree the Meerkats are awesome, Them and Monkeys are my Favourite!!! This reminds me of when I went to the zoo in the holidays and met my Soccer friend in the Meerkat tunnels. Are Meerkats your absolute favourite or do you like other animals too? If you do, Check out my Zoo story at my blog on Blog you later!
