The ñandú [South American ostrich] may be my favorite animal in Uruguay. I've seen them many times driving through the countryside and it's always a treat. Last weekend at the Estancia los Morteros I stood quietly beside a fence and a pair of them came within 50 feet of me. Very cool!

Hi chuck,
Have you been to the Pan de Azucar Zoo, near Piriapolis? I guess they have plenty of ostrich there too.

And by the way, have you been to the "optical illusion" site near "Las cumbres" in Maldonado?
I haven't. They sound interesting
