I know that I have not posted in awhile. My only excuse is that I have been abroad and this blog is not about my cultural experiences abroad.
In any case last week I returned home and took my children to the Ramat Gan Safari and Zoo. I had been there once before but had forgotten what a great place this is. There is a safari where one drives through and gets to see the animals up close and personal (and the ostriches all seem to come right up to the car windows). There is also a zoo part where one walks around and sees the various animals. I happen to love zoos and have been to zoos all over the world. This zoo is great for several reasons. It is very clean and well-kept (and has lots of bathrooms). It has large parts of shade so unlike the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem, one can find protection on a hot summer day (though one cannot avoid the extreme heat in the middle of a summer day). And lastly, it is just the right size to be manageable.
