JULY 2005: Man and horse
We now stay in the country side. Grass was green at the margins of Lagoa (Lake) Pampulha, while grass is withered only a few meters away from the margins. In July, the drought period – starting in May and finishing in October – takes its toll. Horses love fresh, green grass, and their owners are aware of that. But the horses have to work for that. They need to carry heavy loads, pull the cart, in which the owner carries various kinds of freight. Besides, Belo Horizonte is far from flat. The horses have to climb steep hills, anywhere in the city. Their reward: spending some time grazing green grass, in the warm sun, late in the afternoon.
