One day this summer, I went to Glen Echo Park just to ride the merry-go-round. This one is a very nifty and historic Dentzel Carousel built in 1921.
There are all kinds of cool animals you can ride – bunnies, tigers, giraffes, ostriches, and – of course – horses.
I really wanted to ride a bunny, but some other kids got there first, so I found a friendly looking horse. It was kind of tall for a little hippo like me, so my staff had to give me a boost.
Glen Echo has a lot of other fun things to do, too!
I also went to some of the galleries to look at a lot of art and had an ice cream cone, but I didn't stay for dancing at the Spanish Ballroom (although hippos loooooove to boogie). I'll have to plan another trip!
