It is funny how people tend to read about things, situations, places and stuff when they are not born there. Why is James interested in knowing the background of the Antwerp Zoo while he hasn’t even boated (if that was a verb, meaning being on the water in a boat) the waters in his own hometown? Why do people admire and climb towers in holiday cities and not in their own? Why would you not wanna know all about the place you are born or living in as well? James knows this and looks around in his home town as well. There are at least 23 streets in his town that he has never walked. He wants to walk them all.
