70 kilometers far from Saint-Petersburg the «Australian Khutor» is situated. It was named so because some of it's inhabitants are the «green continent» born and bred inhabitants. They are ostriches. The presenter Anna Smirnova got acquainted with the farm owners Vladimir and Irina Alksnis. Vladimir told that ostrich's brain is three times little than it's eye is (it means short-term memory), explained why the ostrich's leather is much more expensive than the crocodile one is and Irina treated the representer to the omelet with an ostrich egg. One this egg is equal up to 50 chicken eggs! It even isn't simple to break an ostrich egg. There's a lot of calcium in it's shell, that is why it's grinned carefully to the powder condition and mixed with water. To drink a cup of such cocktail is as good as to eat a kilogram of curd. One can taste all these delicacies including ostrich steak by visiting the home restaurant in the territory of the «Australian Khutor».
