A quick post for this morning — I need to take off for the gravel roads soon.

I enjoyed seeing them, as I don’t often encounter herbivorous South American mammals along the road. The last one I saw was a saddled capybara being ridden by a straw-hatted young boy — or was that in a dream I had?

Later I met a small herd of friendly Alpine goats, but I have yet to photograph them. Stay tuned!
