To batalay: a day at the office

  • Thanks for your comments, dear Bulent. I didn't know about the native Americans on those skyscraper jobs. Thanks for your reference. On the other hand, it seems very strange to me that they'd know no fear of heights, maybe they just needed the money?

    Gracias for your words & enjoy your weekend.

    There is no doubt that they needed the money. But a tradition existed among these people that they, more than anyone else, had the courage to overcome acrophobia. In the same way that among the Massai tribe in Africa, the males come of age by single-handedly killing a lion, equipped only with a spear and shield.

    Warm regards,
