Food is scarce for everyone. People care a lot for the cattle that
survived the deluge and its aftermath. Cattle are more than
domesticated breadearners..they are family.
Children find n collect fresh greens for them any way they can.
This is risky(photo), but the boy was reassuringly confident
when I spoke to him.
