Day 2 – The Goat Herder

day - 002

Just made it through the second day. Since I am still at the countryside with my family, we had a long day by visiting the surroundings. We started with the village, and then walked along the river that crosses it. The landscape is beautiful, and also the local people. At one moment, we spotted a goatherd and say hello to him. He replied, and asked for a cigar. My uncle offered him one and also a lighter. We were surprised when he told us that he didn’t want to smoke it right away. “The day is long” he said. This made me think that what he said was very representative of his way of life and that everything which many consider to be insignifiant, for him is very valuable.

We continued our journey and on the way back there he was, taking care of his goats. See you tomorrow!
