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.
