week 2-fighting monster birds, seven voyages of sinbad
Week 2 - I fought with monster birds as big as buffaloes.
Alone, I ascended the highest mountain in Iruya (a poky village in northern Argentina). When I was answering the call of nature, I noticed a huge shadow swooping down on me. For a moment, I wasn't sure I should finish my business or to run for cover. Luckily I managed to fight off the monsters without making a mess.
Maybe "fight" is not the correct word. A casual observer will say the birds simply drift around, minding their own business. Mind you, those monster birds are Andean Condors, the biggest flying bird on earth. They are as huge as a buffalo (well... a baby buffalo perhaps), and their faces are as ugly as dirty socks. I was sure if I didn't look as alive as I was, they would have chewed me up like a dead rat.
