Bet you didn’t get to ride an ostrich this weekend

Friday night, we went out to Christi’s parents house to spend some time with her brother and his family. They are currently transitioning between Uganda and Southern Sudan. Saturday, we went out into the plains behind their house and saw lots of wildlife – including a group of 27 giraffe. For lunch, we went to a nearby ostrich farm, and all the kids took a ride on an ostrich. (It’s less than $1.50 each). I was slightly over the weight limit,

but the handler encouraged me to try it anyway. The ostrich, on the other hand, protested when I first sat down. It’s definitely worth doing once in your lifetime.

    Oh man, I want to ride an ostrich. My friend just got back from Uganda. He got chased by a warthog but didn’t ride any birds.
