This photo was taken by a fellow volunteer at the picnic which usually punctuated our Teacher Trainings. It was very common to walk a goat to the picnic, and then cook and eat the goat as part of the meal. The teachers offered me the honor of beheading the goat. I was very nervous because the knife is small and I was afraid the goat might suffer if I did not behead it properly. Luckily, the blade went through the goat's neck cleanly in one stroke, with enough extra force to bury the knife deeply into the ground. The bowl held by the man on the right was used to collect the goat's blood, which was also cooked.
