Sunday afternoon in the South Indian zoo of Trivandrum: there are hundreds of Indian families with their children and two Swiss boys with their mother.
We want to have a look at the lions, crocodiles, zebras, monkeys and their friends. All the local people have the same purpose.
But, as soon as they discover the two blond boys, the zoo animals completely lose their interest.
“Can we take a picture, please”, they keep on asking.
“Oh, I am glad”, says my small boy at the end of our visit, “that we won’t live in India all the time. It slightly gets on my nerves to pose and smile every five minutes.”
