One of the days I was looking forward to was a ZuZu and Zoo Day with my friend. In the afternoon we headed to the Zuzu Cafe that serves pretty good fresh food. My friend and I split a grilled basil/mozzarella/tomato grilled panini with a side of salad. I always love the homemade dressings these places serve. Inspires me to make my own salad dressings from now on!
After the cafe, we walked across the street to the Henry Vilas Zoo. It’s a pretty nice zoo that is free to the public. They have quite a lot of animals and they are currently expanding a few parts. There was even the ‘Children’s Zoo’ play area, which I thought was the real zoo! As much as I don’t like seeing animals taken out of their habitat and put into small areas, I hope that people visiting the zoo become educated on wildlife preservation and learn to respect the earth. I think my favorite area was the bird conservatory because it was full of botanical plants and the birds could fly wherever they wanted to.
