Travel diary: The Legend of the Phoenix
Date: 12th of May 2013
Location: San Diego, California, USA
Excerpt: This morning, I decided to spend the day at the famous zoo of San Diego. When I overheard the guide near the pink flamingos' lake narrating the tale of the legend of the phoenix, I was instantly riveted. On the shores of the salt and soda pink lake Natron in Tanzania, pink flamingos live in isolation due to harsh environmental conditions only they can bare. The legend says that every time the volcano erupts, flamingos get completely wiped out of the shores. However, once the natural phenomenon is over, they miraculously reappear and the cycle goes on.
They say, that’s how the legend of the phoenix was born.
