    We will stay in a hotel in Landgraaf (famous from the festival 'Pinkpop') and the city we will visit is Valkenburg. This all will be in South-Limburg, a province of our country.

    Do you know the main question Dutchies asks where ever they go on holyday?
    "What is the (free) WiFi code?“ ;D
    So no worries about a sudden disappearance of this guy

    Main reason for our stay overthere is the visit to my wife's brother who is seriously ill. Because the distance (about 2 1/2 hours with car, 3 1/2hours by train) a stay for several days is more efficient.
    His youngest daughter works at Gaia Zoo so we are familiar with that parc. An other great place is in Landgraaf and called Mondo Verde(Green World). His second daughter is working at that place.

    The newbies look as if they had a very structured skin (for lack of better word), more than the others. Is there a reason for it, like origin or so? (I mean the real animals they claim to picture - no need to tell me about your trip goals, lol)

    My guess: those two with wrinkles/more structured skin are calves, as in two nieces, playing together.
    That is why I placed them next to that bigger one.
