Big Eyes, Small Brains
A day trip to Outdshoorn gave us more information than we ever could have wanted about the odd-looking, expensively-feathered, knee-less, rock-eating (and turns out, delicious) “birds” commonly known as ostriches. During a tour of the Ostrich Farm grounds that felt like a middle school field trip to a petting zoo we stood on their eggs, lost staring contests, and let them bite us with their toothless beaks (which felt only appropriate after one had to put up with me sitting on its back for about 30 seconds).
Oh, and then this happened after Noelle fought off a group of 7-10 year olds (the only other people in the tour group who didn’t exceed the weight limit) for a spot in line…(EDITOR’S NOTE: If they asked for the “attention of parents of all the riders” one more time…)
…and then we dined.
