A 'place' I have visited

The animals often don’t belong to the shepherds who take care of them during the summer. Richer farmers pay them to go to the “jailoos” – the name for pastures in Kyrgyzstan. Every week, shepherds get down from the mountains to go sell the sheeps in animal markets that can be found all around the country.
