Au revoir!
Has anyone said goodbye to the kangaroos at the Australian Walkabout Exhibit in the NC Zoo?

According to last Sunday's Courier-Tribune, the 4 red kangaroos have been on loan from the Detroit Zoo since December, 2003. You may still visit the wallabies, Australian birds and reptiles at least till the end of October while work has begun to change this area into a children's learning and discovery center, a new transitional exhibit that is scheduled to open April 1, 2007.

If you were lucky to have visited you may have said adios, arrivederci or auf wiederschen--all common phrases used in European countries to say Bye Bye!

If you're planning a trip, don't find yourself tongue-tied while abroad, visit our library's catalog for language and conversation books, tapes and bilingual dictionaries.

Hasta luego!
