After finishing the last Specialized Training, we drove across the country to Crotone so President could do some interviews and attend church. The Fasano Zoo Safari is only a short distance from Bari so we made a little detour and took a two hour P-Day. I love zoo animals, but this was probably my favorite zoo experience.
The zoo sits on a hillside overlooking the Mediterannean Sea. We drove the car through several fenced enclosures. We had lots of carrots and apples to feed the non carnivorous animals. We rolled the windows up tight when driving through the lions, tigers, and bears. We got in wire cages and entered into the area with baboons. We were grateful to be in the cage and not out of it. We wished we had more time to spend with the animals, but duty called and we had to leave because we still had a four hour drive to Crotone.
