In a modern Zoo, the animals are kept in open displays. Habitats without bars. A great improvement for keeping animals; even though the visitors are having trouble seeing anymals... um, any animals.
Today we went to Blijdorp (Rotterdam) Zoo, where the old constructions, architectural masterpieces, are reused for other purposes like a children's playground. I love it. Old and new 'living' in perfect harmony. [Daily Abstraction 218102101. Painting available].
