Hard To Swallow



The locals here in Aruba have their own way of life even though the island is bustling with tourists. Over the past nine years that we've been coming here, we have learned to respect many of their customs. Some, however, are a little hard to swallow.Like the morning I took this photo.On my way to the beach for my morning walk, I spotted him crossing the road, snapping this pic.Upon my return to the resort, I saw one of the locals walk by hurriedly, carrying the duck.He planned on cooking him for supper.
We were sad.
However, it is comforting to know that it will be used to feed a family.

Sometimes it's better not to know what's going on.

Hi JP! I loved the photo of the cute lil' crab and the pelicans, and understand about the duck--His family I'm sure was grateful to have a good meal...

no different than eating a cow or pig or chicken except they don't have access to all of those..

Probably not much different than seeing a chicken on a farm, then having chicken for dinner. Or beef. or Pork. If anything, that duck had a much nicer life than the animals that supply our food.
