There is always a story, it seems, and living in Tunisia, the stories are so different from what I would have experienced in the States. For example, yesterday was Journée de la Vache (Day of the Cow) when 3 cows invaded our citrus orchard.These huge animals just brush by and knock the blossoms off the trees. So I kidnapped one cow and held her hostage in my garden (she kindly mowed and fertilized the grass) until the owner showed up later in the day, worried and apologetic.
As you can see, turning a bad day into a good one, I attempted some sketches of this slow-moving beast. Actually, this was high adventure--do you have any idea how BIG a cow is?
