Cattle drive through the village

It is not unusual to see a cattle drive right through town in Costa Rican villages.  Northwest Costa Rica, which is Guanacaste province, has cattle ranches dating back to Spanish colonial land grant days.

Ranchers often live in villages and take their cattle out to pasture in the morning and bring them back in the evening.

The man in this photo is not the rancher.  He is a villager who was riding a bicycle faster than the cattle were walking down the street.

This week we are showing photos of the ancient Khmer temples of Siem Reap, Cambodia, beginning with one of my favorite photos, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Walking along a rural road there obviously requires some tolerance and patience. I maxed the photo for full effect and I loved the bucolic scene.

What a fun picture! When we come upon a cattle drive on the road I am always happy to wait for them to get by us. I just whip out the camera and pass the time taking pictures.

What a great photo this is! I love those floppy-eared cattle and that guy on the bike is a perfect addition to the entire scene.
Thanks for the food and fun yesterday evening. I had a great time.

You are right, Dave. Hartford hardly ever has cattle drives through the middle of the downtown.
