Went | Chicago + the Lincoln Park Zoo, 2

My first day in Chicago, Nabi and Diego took me to the free Chicago zoo. I couldn't believe this place was free! There were chimps, gorillas, black bears, polar bears, a lion, a tiger, and everything in between. I saw a giraffe for the first time in my life!
Being at the zoo, admittedly, made me feel a little sad. Seeing all of those wild animals caged up; I'm sure they're not fooled by the paintings of their natural habitat painted on the walls. It was pretty magnificent to see those animals up close in a way I never had before, though, even if I left feeling a little conflicted.

Aww the animals are so cute! I totally agree with you; seeing all the wild animals caged up makes me feel sad too. I generally avoid zoos for this reason.

@Micaela: I know! I don't remember the last time I went, and I probably won't be going anytime soon.

@Meredith: It was definitely a sight to see!
