One day I was visiting on a horse the landlord of that village Mr. Rahim. It was summer. Sitting on a high horse I could see all yards through low wall of village. At one of the yard of the village an Armenian woman was sowing grain to hens and chickens. In other yard a Muslim woman was washing dishes on the edge of the aryk. At one of the yard an Armenian child, sitting in the shade of a tree, was reading a book. At one of the yard a 12-13-year old Muslim boy tied rope tail of cat and ran from one side to another side of the yard and the cat, mewling, was moving backward after the child.
