Hellbrunn Zoo and the lessons it taught me

by ada

I haven’t visited a zoo in like twenty years* so it  was a new experience and I definitely learnt a lot:

  1. Zoos are not for children. I haven’t seen a single child there
  2.  People who actually visit the zoo can be put into one of the following categories:
    • young couples
    • not so young couples
    • weird single ladies who talk to the animals (yep, that’s me)
    • tourists
    • groups of cool Turkish guys in their early twenties
  3. Talking to your dog/cat/parrot/pet rabbit is socially acceptable. Calling a water pig you haven’t met before, “sweetie”, in public, makes people avoid you
  4. Crying out the word “kukk!” may make your 15 months old nephew look at you every time, but it definitely doesn’t make the bears/lions/rabbits/geckos look at you
  5. The cheetah will look at you.
  6. Having eye-contact with the cheetah through the zoom of your camera freezes your spine
  7. Photographing monkeys is even more difficult than photographing children. I worship wildlife photographers endlessly
  8. Even a turtle can be too quick if shooting with a mediocre camera

* visits to the kinderboerderij at Clingendael with the babies I used to babysit doesn’t count

My camera luckily recovered from yesterday’s bad mood, so this is the wall of the Steintheater in the Hellbrunn woods. On the 31st August 1617 Claudio Monteverdi’s opera L’Orfeo was performed here. It was the first opera production on German-speaking terrain ever.
