This is a land of no fences.
A land where you can walk freely.
A land where artfully constructed stone huts cling to unlikely places and jangling cowbells and the reedy voices of goat herders are the sounds of everyday life. Here a woman may walk for a day just to buy a packet of tea, but at the end of it her lined face will still have time for a broad smile and warm hello.
