Hot Bunnies

So I mentioned in my last post that I was in Leverkusen last week. I stayed in the stately Kasino Hotel, together with 2 German colleagues. I bumped into one of them when I checked in on Thursday night and when I told him that I wanted to go for a little walk as it was still light outside, he said the park surrounding the hotel was really beautiful "and there are rabbits". I expected there to be a little petting zoo or cage with a couple of rabbits, but could not have been more wrong. There were rabbits EVERYwhere, dotting the grass like raisins in a matcha cake:
Being wild, they were shy and you can believe me that about 2 thirds had hopped away before I could take the picture above. I went for another walk on Friday morning to be able to take better pictures with my camera's zoom: 
 I a way, it reminded me of the famous wild deer in Nara, Japan:

There was a Japanese Garden and plenty of squirrels too. If you are ever in Leverkusen (not that likely, I suppose), make sure you go to the "bunny park".
Speaking of bunnies - the term holds the same ambiguity in German as it does in English and when the colleague who had told me about them informed the other German colleague that he had seen many bunnies on his walk after dinner, he was thinking of the 2-legged-ones until I also mentioned them over breakfast...
