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

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

Coping mechanisms are healthy.  My coping mechanism is humor.. sometimes funny.. sometimes silly.. sometimes super dark.  In a very scary world.. right now, my friends who pass me anything that will make me laugh.. are my favorite friends.  I had a friend in junior high who sent me a card once that read, “The one who laughs- lasts.”  I concur.

Please skip by if you are not amused.  Definitely not for everyone.. but covid19 .. eat it.

Smile –

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
