... to let go and the trainers grabbed your arms as you fall. They offered Glenn a turn and ever suggested he give it a go without the trainers help but that ended about as well as you can imagine, We ended the tour with a "neck massage" which includes you holding a bucket of food in front of you with your back to the ostriches meaning the have to bend bang and stretch over you to feed.
