Friday, I woke up at 7:15 and had a coffee and the next hours I did different chores, prepared stuff and finished to pack, etc. Then at 9:50, a taxi came with Anita inside and we went to the airport. We were there are 10:10. We went to the bank and met Natascha and then Kitwana. We checked in out luggage, walked through the security check and at the other side, we went to the lounge at least one hour. I had some soup and other stuff to eat, soft drinks, coffee and beer. Then, we waited at the gate and boarded. The plane wasn't much delayed. We were in the business class. We had a rather nice meal, I also read, talked, took photos from the window etc. After more than 4 hours of flight, we landed at the south airport. We walked and took our luggage, went to the WC and went out, it didn't take too much time. Then we took a taxi and after one hour and a few minutes, we arrived at the hotel. We checked in and went to out room. I was with Anita and Natascha in one room. We stayed there for a while to get installed etc and then went back to the reception to meet Reto. We walked at the beach and saw the shops, I took photos, and we talked, etc. Later Reto left and we found a restaurant and we ate the dinner there. We stayed until around 10 and came back to the room. I used my phone and laptop, had a shower, used my laptop again and slept rather early.
Thursday was the last day of work. It was also the Thursday before Easter. After work, I did the chores like I would on Friday and then had a lunch while watching TV. I watched TV most of the evening and also had some beers and went to bed not too late.

Next day, we got up at 7:30 and had a good breakfast, it was a buffet. We went to the room to take stuff and met Reto at the reception and went to the place in front of the hotel where the small train to the Loro Parque is starting, but before I took some photos of the waves. We took the train and entered into the Loro Parque. We had to sign a waiver stating that we cannot use our photos professionally. Then I walked with Anita and Natascha through the park, we saw the gorillas and the penguins and we got a rather positive opinion of the park. We walked a while together and went to different animals, like and aquarium and then white tigers, then to the jaguar and then I left them there and stayed a long time with the jaguar and could take some good photos. I then went to the lions where I met Kitwana and also took some photos, then walked around the park. I found Anita and Natascha by accident and stayed together a little while, then separated again and spent the last hours in the park. During the day I bought me some drinks and an ice cream and later a beer with fries. I took the small train back at around 6:30 PM and met Kitwana there, so we arrived at the hotel together. I lied down on my bed and used my laptop and phone. Later we went to find a restaurant and I took a few photos on the way. We found a table on a terrace above the sea, it was nice. I had a cocktail, a salad, a steak, and beers of course. We also talked, took photos and stayed at the restaurant until at least 10PM. We walked back to the hotel, used my laptop and phone, had a shower and then slept.
Sunday was about like Saturday, after a good breakfast, we took the small train to the Loro Parque but without Kitwana. I stayed a bit together with Natascha and Anita, we first to the lion and then went to the jaguar without Anita and Natascha. I also walked a lot around the park but also often went back to my friend the male jaguar and the young lions and the white tigers, I could take some nice photos. I also had an ice cream and some drinks. I stayed at the park until around 5:20 PM but hat to wait for the little train. I was back at the hotel at 5:45 PM and chilled at the room and at 6:15, we went to Reto's room and he had his suit on. We went to the beach with him, I took photos and Anita filmed, it was fun as usual! We stayed outside one hour and then went back to the room with Kitwana. Then, we went to the supermarket, I bought some drink and chips, we put the stuff back to the room and went to a restaurant quite near to the hotel. I had some salmon and some other stuff, of course a beer. I was quite good anyway. I also then had a dessert and stayed until around 10PM. I had a shower and used my laptop and phone and then went to sleep rather early.
Monday, we woke up quite early and went to the breakfast at opening time, so 7AM. After breakfast, we met Kitwana at the reception and took all together a taxi who brought us first to the airport because Kitwana had to flight back. We were on the taxi 20 more minutes and stopped at a port where we looked for out board. We boarded on a kind of yacht and went outside on the sea to try to find dolphins and whales. We saw dolphins near a fish farm and I could take some photo, but it was quite difficult, so I didn't have so many good ones. And at the same time a woman was starting to get sick, then other people and also Anita... Me and Natascha not fortunately, so I could take pictures etc. We made a break then where the sea was calm and a guy snorkeled. Then we went back slowly to the port and were back at around 1:30 PM. We sadly didn't see any more dolphins but took other pictures. When we were back to the port, Anita was feeling better. We took a taxi to our hotel, it took around 1 std. and 20 minutes. When we came back at the hotel, I was quite tired, so I rested a bit on my bed but also used my laptop and did other things. At almost 6PM, I went with Anita to walk in the town and took many photos. We came back to the hotel, stayed there a bit and went again out, to have dinner at a restaurant quite close to our hotel. I had some meat and also ham and melon as starter (which came together with the main course) and afterwards I had a big dessert. Of course, I had enough beer. At this restaurant, there was a Spanish singer who entertained us. We came back to the hotel not too late, I had a shower, used my laptop and slept not too late.
The next morning, we didn't have to get up too early. We went to get the breakfast at a bit later than 8PM and then went to the room to take our stuff and then went with a taxi to the Mount Teide. It was the same driver as the day before! We went always higher with the taxi. First we had the town, some villages, forest, where we stopped once or twice to take photos. Then there were only bushes and the landscape was getting very volcanic and like out of this world. I took many photos from the car but we also stopped once more for a small time. Then we arrived at the lower station of the cable car at 2300m of altitude, or so. We walked around, took some pictures and then got into the queue to get on top of the mountain. We had to wait a while until we could get inside it. The travel lasted for almost 10 minutes, I took many photos during this time. On the top, we walked a bit around and I took photos, then I walked alone on a path, maybe 250m, I took my time and took photos. Then I came back and met Anita. We sat together and talked, then I went to ther other side to take more photos, then we sat again and later, went in queue to the cable car to get down again. We waited 20 minutes and then could get in. When we were back, we went to the toilets and I met a woman who saw me at the Loro Parque and we talked a bit. Then sat down and saw our taxi driver, so we went with him. He first brought us to a place with nice and special rock formations and we stopped 10 minutes there and took many photos, then went back on the taxi. The driver stopped later so we took more photos and then we went back to the hotel, this time without stopping, but I still took many photos from the taxi. We arrived not too late at the hotel. I rested a bit and also used my laptop and phone, went a bit on the balcony, then went with Anita and Natascha to the supermarket and then only with Anita to a bar of the hotel. I took a cappuccino and Anita a tea. Since it was happy hour (2 for 1), we took one more. Then we went back to the room and rested a bit, I used my laptop. Then, we went out again and went to a nice restaurant with view on the sea. I had a salad and a pizza, and of course a couple of beers. Then, we went to a restaurant at the other side of the hotel to drink a cocktail and there was the same singer as the day before. We took the time and the atmosphere was nice, so we stayed there until at least 11PM. Then came back to the room, I had a shower and then used my laptop a little and then slept.
Wednesday morning, we slept longer. I used my phone and laptop and then we went to have a breakfast at 9:15, there were more people than the other days because of the time. After the breakfast, I packed and then used my laptop. Shortly before 12, we finished to pack and we left the room. We put our cases on a room and sat on a garden next to the lobby. Anita and Natascha wanted to go to the hairdresser, so I went to the beach to take photos of the quite agitated sea, the waves was quite high, it was awesome, I took many nice photos. Then I went back to the garden of the hotel, sat down and used my phone waiting for the other ones. Since the taxi driver came (the same as the previous days!), we took out our cases and went with the taxi to the airport, it took us more than one hour. We went to check in (we had to wait), then security control and then walked around the airport an then found a restaurant. I had a big beer there and waited for the boarding time, we talked and then boarded but it took some time. We got into the plane and then it took off with 15 minutes of delay. Later, I used my laptop and started to write this text, then we had a dinner. Later I was tired and tried to sleep a bit and then I used my laptop again. Later, we landed in a quite empty airport. We walked, got to take our luggage, said bye to Natascha and took a taxi. I was at home at around 11PM. I said hello to my cats and started to empty my case and did some more stuff. I also pet my cats, had a shower and went to bed after midnight.
After a not too good night of sleep, I woke up rather late, did some chores and tidied up stuff, had a breakfast, did more chores, shaved, went to the Migros to buy food and other stuff and did more chores, then used my computer. I mostly copied all my photos to the computer and watched them, deleted the bad one and did lots more at the computer until the evening. I went to the coop to buy me meat and cooked. I ate and used my computer for a couple more hours and then watched TV for the rest of the evening. I had a shower, watched more TV, had a beer and went to bed rather early.
Next morning, I woke up at 9 although I wanted to wake up at 8! I had a coffee and got ready, then took two buses to the zoo but the second one had 10min of delay because of a technical problem. When I came, I saw there were lots of people, like on a Sunday. I went to the bears, lions, tigers but I saw nobody, so went to other animals, went to the new Australia part and looked around and saw the koalas but they were sleeping, so not really interesting... Later, I went back to the exotarium, then tigers and saw Werni, Armando, Annemarie and her Husband Louis. We talked and then saw Sayan the new tiger playing with a bucket with fabric tubes around and could take some nice photos. I stayed some time, then went to the snow leopards and could take nice photos of Villy. Then back to the tigers where I saw my friends again and took a few more photos of Sayan. I went to the Zoolino but took pics on the way. There, I took cute photos of the young pigs, then went to the baboons, then elephants to eat some Thai lunch. I went back to the Koalas and could stay a long time because one of them was active an ate, so I took nice pics. I went to the Pantanal restaurant to have an ice cream and cappuccino and then went to the lions, took a few pics, then tigers and took more pics and stayed some time but then decided to go and took the bus back home. At home, I fed the cats, did some chores and other things and used my computer a bit. Then Anita came and I we first went to the coop at my place to buy mean and then went to her place. She started to cook and I helped her with more stuff. We ate and we spent a calm evening, I had a couple of beers and we talked. Then came back home, used the computer until rather long, had a shower and went to bed.
Saturday, I slept until late. I did some chores, had a breakfast while using the computer. I did lots of things and then started to Photoshop lots of pictures, especially of the Loro Parque. I also ate many chocolate eggs, pet my cats and did some chores. At around 5:10PM, I left home with Toxo and we went together to the furry round table by bus and train and when we arrived there, we sat with Smoki and ordered a shisha and beer. He took his rat Intet with. We smoked, drank, talked with other furries and Anita came. Later, when the shisha was finished, we went inside and ordered food, then ate and also drank beer, talked and had some fun until quite late. At around 11Pm or maybe later, we left with Toxo and Anita brought us home. At home, I did a few things, had a shower and went to bed.
Sunday, I got up at around 10AM, did some chores and then had a breakfast and used the computer. I did different things, but mostly photoshopped photos from the Loro Parque. At around 2:30PM, Anita came and I continued to use the PC because she had a phone call and then we went together to walk around one hour at the Greifensee, because the weather was quite nice and warm. I took my camera with me and took some photos. When we came back, we watched TV almost two hours and ate some stuff during this time. Then, Anita left and I tidied up a bit and used my computer for quite much time, I photoshopped more pictures. I also had a small dinner in between. Rather late, I had a shower, then watched TV and went to bed a bit after midnight.
