Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. --- Mark Twain

Zoo Lujan

Day 549
58 798 km since the beginning of the journey.

Lujan is a small town, 60 km from Buenos Aires. There is a very peculiar zoo near the town – most peculiar, because visitors can go inside the cage of the lion and the tiger as well.

Together with the King of Animals.


It is not very easy to get into the lion`s cage at all. Not this kind of formalities that you sign somewhere and pass a certain instruction. But there is quite a long queue behind the door of the cage. And no health insurance, or a signature or any other bureaucracy is needed here, no one forces you to climb into the cage, free choice, if you want to go inside you can do it, if not – don`t go.


At the end of the queue. Frankly, the situation is really surreal enough, people queue up for an hour in order to go to two large male-lions in the the lion's cage. And everybody comes out of the cage alive. And in the meanwhile, the lion makes a decent lion voice that sounds far, but no one leaves the queue.


Impression? It was a peculiar feeling when you step into the cage and the door shuts.

Other animals are moving freely around


With an Indian elephant.



The surface of the tongue is rough, similar to cats .
