I know I've only lived in Hong Kong for a few weeks now but when I walk around I truly feel at home. So for this challenge I thought I would go to Central but try to find the elusive botanical garden/zoo without any maps. It was an adventure for sure. Central for me is unique in the way that it is the most modern and urban with a large high end consumer market and narrow streets that wind around the hills of the island so lucidly. It is something in the way that the streets can go from Chanel and Gucci to small allies with lanterns and venders selling vegetables and fruits. The zoo proved a challenge to find but worth the adventure. It was odd, I am used to the Cincinnati (Home of Harambe) in my home town where there are caretakers and state of the art facilities. This zoo was a stand alone, with cages and no one was there, I literally never saw a single worker the entire time. It was sort of sad, the way the monkeys and baboons swung in their cages so trapped that their swinging turned into a circular pattern full of repetition they had without a doubt done dozens of times before. Regardless is was cool and the animals seemed happy enough if not compleatly crazy. Sorry, I'm having a hard time justifying the experience as i write this. The zoo was cool, just felt a bit "captive" like the animals were really in cages and not "habitats" like most good zoos. Anyway...we saw lots (we is my roommate and I) and I really did enjoy the sculptures on the walk there and the architecture of the park.
