Arriving in San Diego
Olivia Smith Donovan, Bio-Inspired Designs Winner
I hadn’t flow across the country since I was little and it was neat to see the small green farms in the east followed by the larger drying looking farms and then desert. Our first day in California we headed to the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park which is actually way up in the hills and was a nice drive on such a warm day (at least compared to Delaware).
Before we even arrived at the park, the landscape was dominated by eucalyptus trees and emu birds from Australia. We also drove past a bunch of ostrich ranches. There were a ton of signs for ostrich eggs, ostrich jerky and emu eggs. But there were no signs for emu jerky. My dad thought it was because they didn’t jerk up well but the cabby thought it was because them made them into burgers. I was sorry I brought it up!
