Caracas Zoo

There are a few animal exhibits at Parque del Este, where we’ve been before, but this past Sunday we drove out to the real zoo: Parque Zoologico de Caricuao (car-ee-coo-ow).

Let’s start by saying that it exceeded my expectations on five counts. First of all, it was sparsely populated on this particular Sunday morning/afternoon. Secondly, nothing led me to believe that this Sunday was different from any other. Thirdly, the entrance fee put our family back 10 cents, and I think that’s only because we drove. Fourthly, there was a relatively heartening amount of living space for many of the creatures (which is not saying much). Lastly, I’d like to go again.

Some locals have told us that they’d never take their kids there because it’s in the west part of town. We braved it with our friends the Cokerdem-Depriests and never felt unsafe for a second. I have to say, that’s the way it usually goes.

    What’s the “pimple” tree?  We saw one in Mexico, with rather bigger pokies.   P.S.  Love to you three!
