Today is my only free day and I actually convinced Johnny to take a small road trip to the nearest town… just to visit the Zoo.

So, we went to Ploiesti!

I love going to the Zoo, if it would be possible I would visit all the Zoo’s in Romania and in other countries as well. I will never get tired of animals.

This trip was fun. The zoo in Ploiesti isn’t that big and they don’t have many animals but its really beautiful. Plus the animals there are as gentle as the animals we have at the country side. I mean, they have signs all over saying “Please, don’t feed the animals” but they come to you and let you pet them and feed them grass.

My favorite animal there was this beauty. The horns were huge, yet she still managed to maneuver them so she can get to the grass.

I love cows (bovines) a lot and I’m giddy as a little kid right now. I actually fed it!

Of course there were tigers, lions and bears, but they were hidden from view or napping (in the case of the big cats). Instead we had fun feeding grass to any herbivore that came our way, including donkeys.

After the Zoo, we went and ate and back home. And all of this in 5 hours! I know it would’ve been easier to go to the Zoo in Bucharest, but we’ve seen it about 3 times so far and I really wanted a break from the big city.
