    Sheep and Goats

    The Qashqai herd about 500 sheep and goats from place to place. With more and more privately owned farms springing up, moving is a major problem for the Qashqai, and many accidents happen as they move their huge herds along the main roads.

    The animals are often attacked by a biting insect which gives them symptoms almost like a human cold – coughing and sneezing. It is not fatal and they get over it on their own accord without any outside treatment. It was quite strange to hear them though. One of the lasting memories from our stay with the Qashqai nomads was hearing the little sheep sneeze.

    Nature calls

    OK, what happens when nature calls? You are given a ewer with water and pointed that-a-way. See that hill in the background? Over the top of that is where you go. Anywhere you like, although we did find a very nice little indentation – almost like a crater – which was quite suitable. Just make sure that the men haven’t gone the same way. I deliberately didn’t drink anything after 17:00, so that I wouldn’t have to get up in the night. Wise move. We hoped we’d be able to just sneak behind the tent in the night, but the moon was far too bright for that!
