A beaming young girl handed me a couple of lamb skewers.
Her father had cooked them over an open fire beside the river after her mother had marinated them. Another family skinned a small goat nearby. A voice from behind asked, “You want to take photo?”
Children sat giggling and eating on a tarp beside a fire. I took out my iPhone to snap a couple of pictures. That’s when I heard an urgent voice. “My friend, my friend, not the women!” I checked the picture I had taken. My image had also captured one of the women with her back turned to me.
Sharp words can be teachers of cultural taboos.
