I have a love/hate relationship with zoos in general. The National Zoo in Washington, DC impressed me because I didn’t feel like the animals were being held as captive as I’ve seen in other zoos. Today’s visit to the Kansas City Zoo made me feel even better. Seems the wild animals have the opportunity for long range wandering….not like the jungle, of course, but I didn’t see pacing and didn’t get a vibe of discomfort.
It was a truly gorgeous day and in 4 hours we didn’t even see it all. I chuckled to myself when I realized that I was craving a hot dog for lunch. Eating healthy makes you totally appreciate the chance when you can eat something unhealthy as a treat.
Until next time….
