So we headed in on the train to Palermo in the centre of BA on a hot and sticky day.  It was a good example of a developing country zoo with an exciting array of loosely held and escaped animals.  Several cages looked as though they may have been vacated and are probably wandering around parts of BA mingling with the locals.

Needless to say the highlight of the trip for the boys was the slide and play area combined with the Rocket lolly!
