22 Tao Pa sheperd

I spent quite a while with this kid.
Not saying much as we didn't have many words in common.
Yet it was friendly and I just sat there and watched him keep his herd of yacks.
He seemed as curious of me as I was of him.
He was uneasy with the camera. Not bothered but self conscious and when i suggested a smile it turned into a grimace.
He had a leather sling and was extremely skilled with it; he'd throw stones just next to the yacks who were heading the wrong way and the yacks would understand right away!

Then the evening came and it was time for him to head back. He said goodbye, gathered his herd and walked away.
