A Forgotten Zoo

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mangkang Zoo is the only zoo in Semarang. Located in Semarang-Kendal highway, across Mangkang Terminal.

When I was there, the pavements were empty. There were only few visitors at the time. The playground is quiet, dark, and gloomy.

From the eyes of the animals, I can tell that they are drown into depression. They have no soul. Their souls have been long dead or just go away to another place.

When I was there, I felt empty. I can hear the breeze, but I can’t hear the tiger roar.
