…an exercise in therapeutic silence and bonding
I remember being impressed, on my first llama walk, with Eduardo’s teeth. They were not far above, with his head bent examining the Colliers Mills woods as we entered them, my exposed neck. We were not far into the woods, however, before I realized he was a very gentle, though cautious, animal. Mixed among other llama guides, I thought the experience, once the initial banter of the group’s outing dissipated, became an exercise in therapeutic silence, and bonding, between man and llama.
