The Antwerp zoo is the oldest zoo in Belgium. Their Egyptian Temple, which houses the zoo’s elephants, is world famous. As a kid, going to the zoo was a major event. My grandparents use to take me on the train to the zoo. When I was like 7 years old, it felt like traveling to the other side of the world: on the train to a big city. It felt like… WOW!
But little kids grow up and don’t visit the zoo as often as they would like. It has been over 5 years since I was at the zoo. Going to see the China Light festival made me feel 7 years old again. It was just awesome, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the zoo being so pretty as it did now.
