IA few minutes ago you were on the subway. You got off at the Porte Dorée station (the former Porte de Picpus got the name of the palace, which now houses the Museum of the History of Immigration in 1931), walked towards the Bois de Vincennes … And in an instant you found yourself in another world. Far, far away. First, surrounded by lemurs and tapirs, jaguars and ostriches, you saw giraffes, heard the roar of a lion, watched the swimming manatees. Then, walking down a side road across a pond where you could almost touch dozens of flamingos, you came across a group of baboons sunbathing. What a change of scenery!
