Sheep Week - Adios, Los Manantiales!

It was such a pleasure to visit the farm! I really connected with the family who runs it. Someday, I would love to spend time on sabbatical at a sheep farm, just waking up every day with the sun and riding horses and learning how to be a gaucho. While not really a pipe dream, I'm sure that the rosy halo I've surrounded farm life with has it's ups and downs, just like everywhere else, and in the end I am happy to do what I do, and live where I live.

After leaving, we had a two hour drive back to the city, followed by another four hour bus trip through the night. Someday, I hope I can return to Paysandu.
