I was walking this morning armed with two kilos of Yumi's humus in one hand and Dylan's stroller held in the other. Yes, I followed MC's advice and went to get my humus at the source (where it is sold by the kilo at $8.50 each). MC, you're ace!
In between my parking spot and the humus shop lay what used to be a gas station that got knocked down a few years back. Now it's an empty yet fenced block. And on that block there were new creatures calling the plot home: a flock of cockatoo parrots. They were just beautiful!
We looked at them and they looked at us. In all other countries this would have been a major zoo attraction, yet in Australia - their homeland - the parrots take refuge at knocked down gas stations. Which, in my view, says a lot about the selfish way us humans have been treating the planet we're sharing with so many other species , all of which share an equal claim to its resources.
