The view on the road into the farm. To the left were the stables. Ahead was a large, round fire pit. To the right was a building that housed the pigs. A dog was just then headed inside that building.

As the day wound down to a close, the oxen were led back into the stables for the night. We had no idea why one man would carry a board.

A large, black farm-dog relaxed that afternoon on the narrow porch of a farm building. It lay between a locked door and two shuttered windows over which was hung a bull's skull. In the center of it all was a small "G Adventures" external link sign.

A grave had been dug, and someone or something had been buried there. This was just outside the farm proper and next to the pole trees with hammocks internal link.
