"Just as Jesus blesses us, we must bless our animals." Mrs. Abelina owns around 58 sheep in the community of Muna Mayu, Anzaldo, Bolivia. She asked us to take a picture of her kissing her smallest sheep days after the San Juan festivities. They accompany her almost every afternoon during the dry season. Farming and pasturing sheep are her main activities, in addition to being a mother, attending to the necessities of her home and participating in union meetings.

When this little girl was asked what she was eating, she told us: "pasta soup." During school recess in the community of Mollini (Anzaldo), girls and boys share a snack that is often made with pasta and potatoes, highlighting the need for greater diversity in the local crops.
