I'm writing to you regarding the new zoo for penguins that recently opened in my city Mumbai, which attracted a lot of news coverage locally and internationally. One of the reasons for it's large coverage is the fact that penguins are traditionally found near the Arctic and are not suited to a country like India, due to it's hot weather.
However, I can assure you that the aquarium is sufficiently cooled to negative temperatures and there are huge crowds on weekends. This can extend to families and even young teenagers as well.
I'm sure you know of my interest in wildlife photography since childhood, so I had the opportunity of going last weekend and snapping a few photography of some adult penguins, including the eggs they hatched.
I'll be sure to send the photographs to you digitally by email, so let me know of your next trip to Mumbai, so I can show around the aquarium.
