I've been to the zoo when I was about 10 and I think the was the last time I've ever been. From memory back then, I had so much and the zoo seemed so big. The animals seemed so big and I felt so small. It was actually an eye-opener when I went back recently. I don't want to say ALL zoos are like this nor is the LA zoo not taking care of their animals, but they just seemed so sad. The zoo's space seemed so small too. Just remembering it as a kid and remembering it as an adult seemed so different.
I've also been trying something new. I would think of places I used to go to as a kid and go back there now. It's the same place, but so much different. It really amazes me how time, change, circumstance really affects a person. I won't look at the same place and feel the same thing if I come back in 5 years.
