As I get closer to packing up and heading home (tomorrow!) I find myself thinking about special moments of the last few weeks.
This was hands-down the most surreal moment: an Ostrich inspecting a Tikit.
Came across a flock of Ostriches one morning, on a farm near Afferden.
They are as inquisitive as they are large! This hen showed a real fascination with my bicycle. Is she showing normal Dutch interest in bikes? Or does she take it for some strange new Ostrich -- the visual impression of seatpost and seat do kind of echo Ostrich neck and head.
After checking out the bike, she took a specific interest in the pannier she could reach. Pannier now has Ostrich beak marks.
