I grew up in Chaguanas. On the street where we lived, there was the school which i attended, at pre-primary school level. The headmaster of the school lived right next door. We had a lovely flower garden with a green shrubbery fencing. Just opposite, however, from a neighbour's fence would burst, beautiful red blossoms, from time to time. It was delightful standing with my dog Shane, just looking across the street. We didn't have a front gate nor back gate. In those days the community was extremely rural and cordial.
The Tuvans or Tuvinians (Tuvan: Tyvalar) are a Turkic ethnic group living in southern Siberia. They are historically known as one of the Uriankhai, from the Mongolian designation. The Tuvans' recent ethnic history is rooted in Mongol, Turkic, and Samoyedic groups of peoples.Tuvans have historically been cattle-herding nomads, tending to their herds of goats, sheep, camels, reindeer, cattle and yaks for the past thousands of years.
