Day Three Hundred Forty-Eight

Netherlands NL-221799 received 10-01-2009

Sent by: chimps
From: Emmen, Netherlands
ID number: NL-221799
Notes: Emmen is a planned city located in northeastern Netherlands.  The population was relatively small before World War II, but after the war, the city expanded and the population is now around 108,000.  The zoo, Dierenpark Emmen, boasts 1.3 million visitors a year.  The zoo's location in the city, built in 1935 and renovated in 1970, became too small, and a second zoo location was opened outside the city in 1998.  One ticket is sufficient to access both parts of the zoo.
