Saturday - The world is your ostrich

Everyone will be talking about the Rijskmuseum this weekend, so since that is covered we can pass to an even more entertaining prospect: a ostrich farm!

In Monnikewerve, a village in Zeeland on the border with Belgium, there's an ostrich farm offering, in no particular order: a discovery tour of the animals, a cafe' serving cakes made with ostrich's eggs, the sale of said eggs (1 ostrich egg = 25 hen's eggs) and meat, bags and purses made with ostrich skin and cosmetics from ostrich's fat.

In these times of meat frauds and horse sold as beef, ostrich seems to be like the new pig.
