This woman, accompanied by two little boys is herding her mixed flock through an Iraqw village to the day’s pasturage. Her village is in the vicinity of Arusha, Tanzania, Africa. This tribe is said to have migrated from Iraq, down through Ethiopia many centuries ago. Their language is more Arabic than African.

    The dust raised up on this goat trail adds to the sense of heat, sights, and sounds. It’s interesting that the animals are fine being on the trail with each other. (No bullying?)
