Currently i am staying at a beef and sheep farm.
It is a first time. The area is hidden and surrounded by mountains. My marvellous host is taking me around to meet all the characters who live in the area: fugitives, dreamers, eccentrics, craftsmen, reclusives, throw backs to an earlier age, religious zealots, a real live soap opera!

Here i have been helping in tree felling, bridge building, rounding up sheep and cattle with Paddy and really getting my feet under the kitchen table with the local community.
