Where’s PJ?: Which Zoo?

We are changing the format of Pachyderm Junket on PJstyle.com.  We will still show the elephant collection, but not everyday.  We will continue Where’s PJ.  So to start this new format, let’s stay with the Zoo theme from yesterday and tell me where this Pachyderm is playing?  Where’s PJ?

Pachyderm in a Zoo

What Zoo is this elephant in? Where’s PJ?

Hint 2:

The girls are leaning on a bronze elephant statue at the same pachyderm exhibit.  Where’s PJ?

The girls are kick’n back on plant

Hint 3:

The name of the exhibit which the elephants are in is Africa Live.  They have exhibits of many African animals like hippos, crocodiles, and of course elephants.  But, here is an extra credit question; what is different/incorrect about the elephant exhibit than other African exhibits?  Where PJ?

Africa Live

Two elephants at the Zoo

Hint 4:

Angela at the elephant exhibit in Africa Live.  The roses and Angela, beautify the picture, but what about this exhibit (besides Angela) does not fit the African motif?  Where’s PJ?

Pachyderm Exhibit

Elephants in the Park. Where’s PJ?

Answer:

The elephants are at the San Antonio Zoo.  The non-African motif is the fact that these are Asian Elephants as indicated by the placard and seen by the size of their ears.  I guess once a zoo has an elephant it’s a valuable commodity that you do not want to move around even if the rest of the exhibits are from Africa.

PJ is at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.  They fly the same flags that fly at the Alamo; they are the flags that flew over Texas as a Republic or as part of a Nation.   The Flags over Texas (Order of Display left to Right) are France, Confederacy, Republic (and now State Flag), Mexico, Spain, USA (in front)

The sequential order of year flown is:  Spain, France, Mexico, Republic (and now State Flag), USA (flag before Confederacy and after), Confederacy

Six Flags is always always a blast

This Pixel Pachyderm is in a free role playing app for the iPhone.  I do not support elephant’s for war, nor do I support any animals used in war,  but I just wanted to show that elephants can be used in other games besides, PJ style games.

Where’s PJ – Which Hotel?

It’s back to good ol’ Where’s PJ.   So we had so much fun on vacation, I wanted to show off the Hotel pics a bit, because the hotel’s web-site has some older pics.  So here is the test, does anyone remember which hotel we went to in Cancun?

Here’s a hint, we had a jam session and had some really great seats.

Any thoughts on were this elephant’s at?

Rocking Elephant

Elephant at a concert

 

Hint 2:

The hotel was all inclusive, so dinners and drinks were complementary.  They provided enough food to keep a pachyderm fed and it wasn’t just regular buffet, they had specialty restaurants as well.  They had a Brazilian bistro with all the meat you could eat, a Mexican Cantina of course, and Zen, an Asian flair cook-at-the-table style grille with FIRE.

What’s your favorite style of meal?

Fire for Elephants

Fire for Elephants

 

Hint 3

Drinks were included too, but we liked the dinner at the Zen so much, we went back 2 days in a row.  Make sure that you order the appetizer and stay for dessert.  They had Sushi too, so I shook it up and tried eel the next day.  It was delicious.

Do you like Sushi?

Dinner anyone?

What’s for Dinner?

 

Hint 4

I know these hints may not be very helpful, but if you read the previous weeks, I bet you have this already.  This shot is from the beach side of the lobby.  These gnomes are on either side on the way to the beach.  We just thought this would be kind-a cute.

Do you like lawn gnomes?  Some gnomes just creep me out, but not these.

Hint 5

This Hotel is affiliated with the pictured Restaurant Chain’s Classic symbol.  The Hotel is only a few miles away.

Mickey Mouse’s Elephant Costume

Happy Halloween!!!.   I love this Mickey.  This was a series of Mickey and his pals in costumes.  I could not think of anything better than the iconic Mickey Mouse in a Elephant Costume.  We bought this when the girls were little and we were lucky enough to trick or treat at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.  I hope that you have fun trick or treating.  Since it is Halloween this will replace the usual “Where’s PJ” this week.  Although I did find an elephant last night in San Antonio.  Be on the lookout tonight, we might see some pachyderms on the streets looking for candy.

Do have a favorite Halloween Memory?
