Moo moo roar

Reynolda Road, 4:37 PM

On the first night in my third apartment in DC, I was awakened by the distinct sound of a lion's roar. I have always been an alert sleeper, and among all the city sounds, my brain sorted that particular noise into the "wake up now oh god wake up now now now" category.

Those who dewll along the other side of the sunken Rock Creek often enjoy the sounds of wild animals from the National Zoo, carried to them by the shape of the terrain, and so sometimes when I drive down Reynolda and see the cows pasturing at the Children's Home, I wonder who all hears them.
