La Ménagerie des Plantes au Jardin des Plantes
In the Heart of Paris, you can escape for a while the fact that you are stuck in a Metropolis.
Le Jardin des Plantes has this power to "BRING YOU BACK" to something more natural. Human.
Not only you can learn a lot about plants, go to the Musée de l'Histoire Naturelle, to visit what's left of our dear dinosaurs, but you can also choose to visit la Ménagerie (plein tarif at 13€).
I went there with Vincent who made really great captures as you can see.
For a moment i really disconnected with the city's noise, the people, metos, cars... tons of cement, plastic and iron...
There was something very peaceful and animals really seemed to be treated very well. I'm not a big fan of zoos... but when you see what we're doing to nature... it seems that some animals have really no more place to survive...
I really recommend you to spend a sunny afternoon there.
..especially if you feel suffocated by too many human beings and the city.
You will see some "Ents" as wel :) this one i'm touching was born 200 years before me... It was quite an emotion...
Have a nice day!
