Main Attraction at The Giza Zoo

We thought we attracted attention at the park, but that was nothing compared to the Giza Zoo! So if you want to know what the main attraction at the zoo was that day, we can tell you, hands down, it was us! It cost us only 25 Piasters (less than 5 cents) each to get in. And we were the only tourists. There was no one to share all the interest and attention of countless pre-teen and teenage boys who had nothing better to do than follow us everywhere and practice what little English they knew. This zoo was apparently quite nice 50 to 100 years ago, but today could use a lot of help. If you are a lover of animals this place is not for you. If you enjoy privacy and peace as you stroll about, this place is definitely not for you.
