As much as I live near Oregon in southern Washington, where is the other 75% of the US’s llamas? (Why did Bowienet last eight years before Bowie’s 2016 death ten years later?)
Are there trees and wooded areas in Iceland?
I thought David Bowie had a knife named after him that came out back in the 19th century.
Take care and may God bless.
No forests? So, where’d they get the oxygen from, the seaweeds?
There are no glaciers in Argelia…
One of the most stunning and famous forests in Iceland is Þórsmörk (Thorsmork), the name literally means ‘Þór´s Wood’. This majestically forested valley, nestling in an area between the Krossá, Þrönga and Markarfljót rivers, in the shadow of the Mýrdalsjökull, Eyjafjallajökull and Tindfjallajökull, glaciers is named after the Norse God of Thunder, Þór (Thor).
That’s why it’s called Iceland and not Greenland! ;o)
Who cares about the llamas? Where are the alpacas located?
The other 75% are in monasteries in Tibet…
Being an Oregonian, I am reminded of when my daughter had a 4-H llama. Stabled it on a nearby farm; wife transported it in the VW Vanagon a few times causing some odd conversations in gas stations. Anyway, daughter did state and county fair duty with her llama, and everyone and I mean EVERYONE asked the same two questions: “Do they spit?” (yes, they can) and “What are they good for?” The only answer I’ve figured for that last one is “4H projects.”
They were used as sure-footed beast of burden by the Andean tribes, and their wool was used for a wide variety of things, since sheep hadn’t been introduced there yet. They are also relatives of the alpaca and vicuna – much smaller, but their hair/wool is highly prized.
