The second day Irene was here on the island visiting, we checked out the St. Maarten Zoo, and we absolutely loved it. The St. Maarten Zoo is small, but cute, and has a variety of animals from around the world, including parrots, capybara, ostrich, monkeys, bats, and reptiles. There is even a petting zoo with goats and rabbits. Iguanas, chickens, and peacocks roam free in the zoo. The coolest thing about the zoo, however, is that you can buy a bag of peanuts to feed the animals with, letting you interact and get really close to the animals. This is something that most US zoos will probably not allow. Irene and I had a great time at the St. Maarten Zoo.
My name is Benji Ho and I am a family physician and 2013 graduate of the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), located on the Dutch side of the beautiful island of St. Maarten. My time at AUC has been quite a worldwide adventure, studying two years of Basic Sciences on the island, then completing my clinical rotations in the US as well as the UK. I completed my family medicine residency at Mercer University School of Medicine / Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia. Today, I am a board-certified family physician practicing outpatient family medicine in Macon, Georgia. I hope you enjoy my site as I share with you my journey. Thanks for visiting Diary of a Caribbean Med Student! more about me...
