Our friends the LLamas
Last Tuesday, Mary and I took a very long bus ride to get to the Black Sheep Inn. The bus ride was long because it was 4 hours on a bus up and down winding bumpy mountain roads. On the way we passed many farms built right into the mountain. The notable thing is that the animals had plenty of room and were feeding on grass. (Not like many American livestock places where they feed grains and are locked up in small areas.)
We got to our ecolodge and found that they had many animals too, including a dog, chickens, pigs, bunnies, and our favorite: Llama's! Here is a pic of them on the volleyball court. The next morning we found one right outside our door (see other pic). They talked to us a lot, but were very calm and fun to have around.
