Postcards from the Zoo

de Edwin


There is no other world that dazzles children more than the zoo. Lots of animals, different species, on premises that seem to be a world full of magic, where everything is possible. Lana has grown up in this environment. Accustomed to her own particular universe, one day the girl sees a cowboy enter her life. But in much the same way that he arrives by surprise, one day the cowboy leaves. Lana starts to work as a masseuse, but she can’t forget the zoo where she grew up or this cowboy who, magically, shook up her life.
