Hub and i have no ahead plans of going to the zoo this weekend. Since we have nowhere to go, i suggested, i mean urged, that we bring the kids to the zoo. It's super hot in Milan, so i guess we need a touch of nature. "let's go to parco Cornelle, i haven't been there, as well as the kids!", i esclaimed. "Me budget ba?", he asked me. "Meron naman. Invite natin sina Tita Beth (my hub's aunt), ilibre natin sila, para makikiride tayo sa car na lang going to Cornelle", i replied. The farm cannot be reached with a normal public bus. Since we have no car, from Milan, we only took a bus, going to Bergamo. "oh, sige, call them. bihis na." hub answered me back.
Hub had good points of not buying a car here in Italy.
1) there are lot of means of transport: bus, tram, subway trains, local trains. all can reach our work destination.
2) traffic/honk-stress free
3) parking problems and vandalisms
4) expensive gasoline, vehicle tax and insurance
5) freedom from accidents or carjacks/robbery
Cornelle is somewhere high up in the mountains near Bergamo, so car is a must. We always knew people with good cars and hearts =)
One of the nice features of the farm is the petting zoo, where kids/adults can feed and touch the domestic and tame animals. Cool! Some ducks, birds and peacocks are "normally" roaming around. my daughter Zendra had fun running with or catching them. =)
These are not just leaves behind us. it's actually a restaurant. Nature na nature ang dating!
i bet if they allow petting on bears, the zoo could have been closed from Day 1. hahaha. RRaaawr!
I love Zebras..they're so Dolce and Gabbana! Fashionable! =)
"Bilis ang click..baka sipain ako ng elephant", i told the one who captured the foto.
Caption: Turtle is 150 years?!!! What? Yes, it's true!
I can never be a horseback rider. I'm a bit scared of horses. At least i touched one.
I'm just too tired (or lazy) to write folks. i could have written thousand words here to describe our trip. Bear with me. I'm totally Zooed. Picture floods can pay for it right?
