I was just about to get on the bus as I saw this nomadic family, probably on their way to higher grazing grounds for the summer. As far as I remember others were following with their herds of sheep and cattle, but unfortunately my bus was about to leave.

Did they have a good life, did they have several children of their own? etc. Another question is: Do any of these children from long ago remember me? Do they tell their own children and maybe grandchildren that "one day when I was maybe five, a stranger came to this road and took a photo of me. I wonder whatever happened to him. Is he still alive? Does he still keep my photo?".
