Walking with Pyar Kaur

In the bush-bush


On the right is a low-lying area which is normally a wetland


The cattle seeking shade and the only bit of water left


Leaving the area with the ‘free-range’ cattle


There seemed to be a path here, but after getting past the cow there were too many nettles and thistles on our way

There is some water left in spite of the drought
