As an Omaha native, I know a good zoo when I see one. Although the Moscow Zoopark, as it is more accurately translated, isn’t quite as impressive as our very own Henry Doorly Zoo back home, it is good nonetheless, if only for its high entertainment value. I had a whole day to hang out in Moscow after my parents and brother left, so my friend Estelle (who is doing an internship there for the summer) and I decided to check it out. I was a little burned by the early afternoon, but it was worth it to see all the weird animals and the weirder human beings.
Estelle and I heard a woman say “Krasavitsa!” when she saw this, which is basically like “Oh how pretty!” We just cracked up laughing.
