  • Cattle camps are where it's at! They are awesome mythical magical places. They are places you can not describe in words, or even take photographs of.

    A place where children watch over cattle with AK-47s wearing matching blue basket ball jerseys.

    Where dance and singing seem more common than talking.
  • Dangerous and beautiful things happen at cattle camps, it's a place where the division between human and animal shrinks down to sliver.

    A place where boys stick cows with wooden straws to suck their blood, and old men throw cow dung over you as a blessing.

    And at night fires of dried dung sparkle between the sleeping animals, like home made star constellations.
