Welcome to Africa

After a tricky car rental process (turns out automatics aren’t common in south africa) and figuring out (sorta) how to drive on the left side of the road, I arrived at Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

A few minutes into park, three wild ostriches appeared from behind a hill on the left side of the road… and ran across the road about 15 feet in front of me.

These giant 8 ft birds run with remarkable grace.  And for a second, I had this “OMG – I’m in Jurassic Park” moment – i swear, those ostriches had a velociraptor aurora  to them.
