As the final “event” of my trip to the Midwest, I went to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, accompanied by Monica Wang, Jordan King, and his daughter. I’ve never really been that interested in the zoo, and I’m conflicted about the captivity of animals—it feels like they’re being forced into confinement against their will, but I also acknowledge that, in some situations, their environment might actually be better than what they experience in the wild. Because of that internal conflict/confusion, I never really went out of my way to visit a zoo. But, when I asked Jordan King for suggestions for what to do during my final full day in Lincoln, he suggested the zoo, so I went along.
