Women high in Spain
14 May 2014 @ 12:02

      Living in the mountain villages is not easy, and even less for women. Hard work, no prospects and little performance forced many people to leave to go to work in the city. From the Valley of the Pongas, in Asturias (North of Spain), left many women. Antonia, Isabel and Leoncia, women who chose to stay, do not forget those who left.

      In many villages were single men and single. The caravans of women are successful. Lola came a year ago from the city to live in the mountains of Asturias and organized two caravans of singles. Many men, like Antonio, are waiting here to know the love of his life.  

      In recent years, the migration from rural areas to cities is shrinking. Some women even choose to return to the place where they grew up or leave the asphalt for the green of this valley. Cristina lives in Taranes. She alone is responsible for the bar of this small mountain village. Here the winters are harsh, but it is still the place where she has chosen to live, surrounded by mountains.

      As Flavi, who, after finishing Psychology, left everything to take care the cattle with her husband Angel. They are encouraging examples, within the bleak picture of rural areas. They are lives of women who have decided to live in the highest.

      Well, I hope that you have thought it is very interesting, as I did.

      Till soon, kind regards,
Luis.
