It’s all happening at the zoo… or El Rancho


Another surprise and hidden gem to visit in Malabo.  You can walk with a monkey, feed other animals, take riding lessons, have a lunch or just watch others hanging out.  Very beautiful place and super friendly as well. We were the only ones there so were able to practice good social distancing.  It’s funny how just watching some animals and a little bit of nature can make you feel so much better.  I hope you enjoy.

“We patronize the animals for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they are more finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other Nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.” ― Henry Beston

Sky, Land, and Water


I have a limited ability to express my love of sky, land, and water.  Empty of most man made items.  Or in other cases being very limited in what we place in it or on it. It’s like closing your eyes and taking a deep breath of fresh air.

We live in a world of complicated chaos and seem to barely notice or appreciate the loudness, or quietness of nature.  Calms the mind if you can slow down enough to catch it!
