Last Saturday night was story telling night, merrily accompanied by a home grown blend of AK-47 and Purple Haze. Stories that echoed each other, how disputes over goats led to guerilla wars lasting for decennia when there was still a borderline with the Moors in the South of Spain, how in today's Nurdistan guerilla fighters -trading with the parts of a goat as their currency- come to vote with their rifle. Stories from hundreds of years of Andalusian tradition, four generations British migrants in Southern Africa a recent UNO-mission, a painting of a boat drawn in animal blood on a cave wall. A crossroad as old as man himself.
