Behind a lot of the photos I have taken there is a great or at least interesting story. I wish I had the time and patience to sit here and write about each one (I'd much rather be out and about). However this one was particularly funny. While sitting in a restaurant run by a lovely Bolivian family in Coppacabana (we were the only ones) the grandmother who from my guess was about 80 years old and just on 5ft sat with her precious cat in the courtyard. This city is notorious for the stray dogs who while are very cute can be vicious. This lady was very adamant about no dog coming into the courtyard and would sit there and each time one would try she would shuffle up from her chair and throw a large piece of wood at it. Once the dog ran she would retrieve the stick. Over the 45 mins we sat here she must of done this about 15 times each time the stick would crash loudly on the gorund scaring the dogs away. With no rest in between as she battled sometimes groups of 4 dogs trying to enter. This photo shows a position she took so the dogs couldn't see her, when they would cautiously enter the corridor she would surprise them.
