She Flies ...

A village girl, Aylin, makes her imagination fly , up to the skys and never thinks of diving ... Hillside of Sabalan Mts. - Ardabil - Iran

* * Aylin lives with her family in different places. They are nomads and live in tents. They change their places according to the seasons! Her family's career and in general the career of all people living there, is ranching. These boxes you can see in the photo, are the Bees' Houses :) ... The bees sleep there at nights ;-)) The nomads of this area are mostly Beekeepers, in summers leading their bees on special flowers to gain excellent Honey and Royal Jelly. * *

    I would think the nomad people make excellent tasting honey with all their knowledge. I wonder if the bees travel well?! I guess they like a ride every now and then!! I like the way she is clutching those two cucumbers and not letting them go!

    Excellent document and composition. But the look of this little girl, her face sad tell us more than long speach. +++++

    she should go "diving" one day, though, as with her pants she too would match the "diving pool" perfectly in color, and who knows, it could be the beginning of a life-long city-country friendship! ; )) i think i have said it before, but it's just so great to be taken on a tour around iran, to see the beautiful landscape (love the rugged meadows and mountains in the back!) and to "meet" its many different people! and in this one here: a glimpse into the nomad girl's life! great! greetings, sabine. p.s: so cute how she's holding on to those cucumbers, as though they were dumbbells! ; ))

    Salam Sepideh,
    Aylin does not look as confident as the Civic Girl.
    But that's quite normal for little girls from the
    country site. (I like the trousers)
    What's in all these boxes?
    Cheers - A.
