Aquarium of the Americas

A happy day in New Orleans.
Who's looking at who? (OK, whom)

I have heard from people who have heard from people that the Aquarium in New Orleans was completely destroyed. I don't know if it is true, but it would make sense considering the location. I can still find no info about the zoo since the flooding began. If you have some, let me know, even if it's bad news.

The aquarium was a happy place, home to many many penguins and sharks and fish and sea turtles and the like. Since most of these animals can swim, perhaps some made it out to sea and can begin a new life. Perhaps the penguins will start a new colony in Jamaica! We went to the IMAX at the aquarium. In the lobby, it smelled like a mixture of popcorn and band-aids. Very strange, I know.

I can hardly watch the news. It is heart-breaking.
