When you travel to Venezuela, there's no doubt that you'll see a cow (or bull) in the middle of the road at least once during your visit. For The Warden Family, it's now an everyday norm that we've become accustomed to. Most owners let their livestock roam freely because it benefits both the owner (by cutting down the feeding expense) and people who need their grass cut. When I use the term grass, I'm really talking about "monte" that grows up to your waist. It's a pain to cut "monte" every month so why not let the cows do it! Well, some residents may argue why they shouldn't let cows roam freely. Cows are very large animals that typically block the entire road when a herd of them come through. This creates a huge traffic jam! They take their time scoping through the sidewalks and yards for "monte" while blocking the road. If they can't find anything green on the sidewalks or in someone's yard (which is highly unlikely), they'll go for the trash cans. Yes, cows in Venezuela will eat trash and whatever leftovers they find. There have been a couple of occasions or better yet "close calls" where we've encountered bulls in the street while taking an afternoon walk. Lucky me, I always happen to be wearing my bright RED shirt or have my RED book bag attached. Just so you know, Bulls don't like the color RED (makes them a bit angry). Experts say its not the colors that makes the bulls angry, its simply the movement of the person. Some have ran with the bulls in Spain, but I have ran from the bulls in Venezuela! Although the picture above makes me look like a young Matador with a small tummy ache and a bright future ahead of him, this is by far not the job for me! Thanks for reading.
