Cows in the Road

It is very common to see cows everywhere here. Cows are worshipped by the Hindu people so you don't really mess with them.

Twice I have seen cows staring at their reflection in a window. It is very funny. I haven't been able to get a picture of that because we were driving down the road and saw it.

The other day we were walking down our road behind a cow and the cows sways over to the vegetable stand and grabs a big old bite of green beans. It happened so fast, of course I didn't get a picture. But it was hilarious. Then Luke without thinking swatted the cow on the rear with a map he was holding to get it to leave the food alone.

Our friend that was with us said, "Do you realize you just spanked a god?" We all started laughing. At the time it was funny. But it is also very sad to see the worship that is due to our God given to things like cows! Please pray for these people.

    1. I know. It happened so fast you didn't have time to think. He also could have been kicked since we were literally walking a few feet behind it when he did it. We didn't expect it to stop so suddenly.
