Wow! I wish I were one of these guys and enjoy views like these instead of watching my beloved but pretty dull computer screen! They are at one peculiar vantage point at Turia Gardens’ Head Park, the whole three hundred thirty thousand square meters (!) park where the astonishing Bioparc introduced in our previous post is placed.
