Since we stopped at lunch and the awesome buskers, Mum and I continued on with the rest of the agenda – Adelaide Zoo.
While walking down Rundle Street, we turned at Frome Road and walked further down. To make a comparison, walking down Frome Road was a bit like walking down Ann Siang Hill, with all the cafes and shops. It took us a short while before we reached the main junctions. Then we started walking through the University of South Australia (City Campus).
The shady paths made the walk to the zoo really cool, especially in the 37 degree (celsius) heat. It was an interesting walk though, we got to walk through the UniSA City Campus and the University of Adelaide. So we saw the university buildings and people working on the grass (We saw this lady lying on the grass with her laptop). At the same time, we walked past the River Torrens and saw a Duck Crossing Sign, so yeah.
I’m going to be lazy here and just spam photographs of what we took. In summary, we were there on a really hot day, so seeing some of the animals was already a privilege. Hee.
We walked through the Botanic Parks on the way out, another great place just to chill. Despite the heat, it was not that humid, so that coupled with the shade made it a really pleasant walk.
Now let’s fast forward to Pancake Kitchen because we had the BEST DINNER of the trip in this place. Mum was rather skeptical of the place before we entered though – there have been too many eating places with specific foods in their names and they sell everything but. Plus, it was actually tucked in an alley so it did look like a bar.
It was not until we saw their menu before we decided to go in. And I’m glad we made that choice.
It was a nice, cozy spot and it reminded me of those tavern bars you saw on Travel Discovery. Unlike what we’re used to here, we paid before food came, which was fine because you didn’t have to fiddle with the bill once you were done. For me, at least.
And that ends Adelaide Day #2 for us! Stay tuned for the next instalment – Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, and Hahndorf Village.
