Wolves, Capricorns & a very sick nekochan
Hello Sweet Peas! :bling:
How have you been? I’ve been pretty busy with being ill the last week and to be honest I’m still not me again. I feel like a feathery ghost wandering the appartment and settling my bed. I hate being ill! It’s unbearable.. :sigh:
Last Sunday however we went to a wild park and whereas the weather wasn’t as sunny as it could have we enjoyed it a lot!

I haven’t been to a Zoo in ages because I wouldn’t be able to stand the view of imprisoned animals. The last time I’ve been to a Zoo was in Japan (so over 3 years ago!) and I still remember how terrified I was when I saw the cute otters rushing from one corner to the other without ever stopping. :bang:
I got really angry that time and told a staff that I wanted to speak with the director because I’m a journalist from Switzerland (obviously that’s not true) but he just looked at me with big eyes and incomprehension. After a while however an other man came and said that they’re very well aware of the circumstances in their Zoo and that they were planning on making it more comfortable for the animals.

I can get rather upset and sad in such situations because I know that I stand no chance against a Japanese Zoo/Aquarium keeper but I know that several people saw and heard my complaints about the poorly treated otters and dolphins and that maybe the one or the other will think about it. It was at the Otaru Aquarium おたる水族館 in Hokkaidō by the way.. :snif:
Anyway, in a wild park the animals have much more space and that’s why I like them better. Of course you won’t see any Tropical animals since we’re in Switzerland here but I enjoyed it nevertheless and was rather impressed by the native animals. Who totally got me under their spell were the wolves. :oh:

If you have a sensitive stomach, skip the next two images! :omnom:

This was our Bento! A little sneak peak but I will show you the whole in my next entry :ha: ..

The Langenberg wild park is located in the Sihl Valley and is for free! I was rather surprised about the second fact..
I would like to start writing also shorter and more random entries again but I’m always concerned they could be too boring for you. Little impressions of my daily life and random thoughts and notes.. I would really like to do that! There are still many things I haven’t told you about yet but I will do so in one of my next entries! Just one little thing… I cut my hair real short! :bang: haha.. I was fed up with all that hair so I decided out of hand to cut it! Stay tuned sweet peas! :aiyo:

  3. Uwaah! I haven’t been to the zoo in ages! Here in the UK zoo’s are pretty nice, there are some crappy ones where the animals are all stuffed in but in the three I remember going to there’s huge open spaces for them to run round in :) It’s amazing that you guys have wolves and bears in your parks! If we see a squirrel we’re lucky! :D
    Can’t wait for your new posts :) and *cough* hair pic plz? *cough* haha xxx

  6. I hate going to zoos for that same reason. There is a free zoo in the heart of Chicago and the poor things live in boxes and pace back and forth. It is awful. Also the zoo in Beijing was pretty bad…but only because I think the smog there is awful and bad for the poor pandas lungs *sighhh. Anywho, the photos from the wild life park are beautiful. What a wonderful place to visit. The bento boxes are cute as always. I can’t wait to get to Japan (I leave Sunday) :]

  7. :hello: i am so sorry to hear that you are sick! :sniff: well wishes, and gute besserung! eat lots of noodles! :kitsune: your zoo pictures look absolutely lovely. i was also thinking, if you wanted to penpal, we should really do that! i can practice my german a bit more too :raburabu: just send me an email or Facebook message with your mailing address and i will do the same, dollface :heartame:

    <3 rae


    (sorry i went a bit insane with all the cute icons this time around :aiai:)

  8. I’m sorry that you’ve been sick dear. I also don’t go to zoos because I can’t stand to see them locked up. It looks like a beautiful area! I love it! ….YOU CUT YOUR HAIR?! WAIT NO COME BACK! I MUST SEE!

  9. It’s sad to hear the おたる水族館 treats their animal that way.. Hope it got better now. The animals here are so pretty and your obento おいしそう〜♥ You make them like (or better than) japanese and your bf is a very lucky guy :) Look forward to your next post! xo akiko

  11. I like how you captured the naturalness of the state of the animals even though they are in captivity.. there something macabre about a few those pictures but they are beautiful nonetheless!
