  1. Reblogged this on Santa's Reindeer and commented:
    Very informative and love the pics…

    • Thank you, Santosh and glad you enjoyed the tour.

  2. One of my favorite jobs was working at Busch Gardens. I delivered food and drinks to all the restaurants and food stands. The food service warehouse was right next to the zoo so we always had a chance to see the larger animals. Not only that, but employees received two free cases of beer each month 🙂

    • That is interesting Will. Sounds like a really ideal job.
