The winter is awesome. I don't remember riding in January and having such great weather. However, it is that time of the year when a person needs to slow down and enjoy peace and calmness of once's home. But, I'm not sure that I can do that when the sun is shining and the road is clear. Well almost clear!
The lady tells me about her sheep and goats. As you can see, she caters for a little herd of her own. The prices of goat cheese have gone down with all the industry and imports. She points out that it is not profitable to make cheese anymore. Really sad. Industry and cheap imports are killing these poor simple people who struggle hard to make a living off their land and animals.
Not to mention the quality and health benefit of real farm food against cheap concentration camp-like cattle industry produce full of God knows what chemistry, pharmaceuticals, growth hormone, GMO-feed and all the rest of that poisonous mix, we don't want to know about but rather stay ignorant than angry.
I cannot resist photographing these guys up close. They are quite tame but I still need to catch up with them. After running after the herd for a while, I figure out it is the best to stand still and let their curiosity bring them closer. And, indeed, in less than a minute they come close enough for their portraits to be taken. :D
I don't eat meat for 20 years now and I don't miss it one bit. On the contrary, I cannot imagine myself chewing on some old long frozen dead animal. It saddens me that these guys will likely end their lives in a stew or on the spit. However, it is my free choice and everyone has their own. A though choice, living in a country where people eat meat every day and the traditional cuisine is not possible without all the various animals parts one can imagine.
However, I am not one of those guys that you take for dinner and end up listening about how "we should all..." Nope. I strongly believe in freedom for each individual to make his own decisions. I am happy with everybody eating whatever their heart desires. So next time you start hearing about "we should all...", "the carbon footprint...", "meat is unhealthy...", "how can you eat that...", "eating meat is a murder...", and all the rest of veggie-nazi repertoire that nobody really wants to hear, tell your favourite veggie to stfu and continue eating your meal in peace! :-)
Even these sweet little guys if the fate brings them to your table. :D
Enjoy your day! :-)
