Where Have the Animals Gone?
We saw this building from the road and knew we had to stop and check it out.
At first we didn’t know what we were wandering in to, then we realized that we were not alone.
We decided to not go up the stairs at first and instead wandered around under the walkway for a bit. It finally dawned on us that we were in an abandoned zoo.
I admit, it was a little eerie walking through here and seeing the overgrown, empty enclosures from the ground level.
Above us we could hear some people calling out “Marco!”… “Polo!”, and decided to take the chance of meeting the them. So we headed upstairs.
The wooden walk ways are in decent shape, but totally overgrown with grape vines and the occasional fallen tree.
We ended meeting a group of young men who are living the life on the road. They were nice enough and we had a pleasant chat but sunset was fast approaching.
All the time I wondered, where have all the animals gone?
