Take a walk on the wild side

by jemma margaret


If you come to Paris seeking wallabies, old bones, well-mannered gardens, extremely slow joggers, and heaps of schoolchildren, then look no further than le Jardin des Plantes.

It was an anomalously sunny day, so you cannot quite see the dinosaur behind this stone scientist’s head. Let me assure you, there is one.

Should there be statues of me made in the future, please display them amongst the bones of fierce beasts.

I might say this is my favorite garden. It’s very low-key and there are wild animals hopping and scurrying about. Unfortunately, an attempt to jog here mostly failed, since Parisian park hours are at best ad hoc.

Here is a thought: touring tourists. Very meta, non?
