August 3. 2010, Bar, Montenegro: My daughter (2 years, 9 months) gets her daily dose of fresh raw (unpasteurized, non-homogenized) goat milk while the family was visiting my native Montenegro. The sale of raw milk is fully legal there (though the public is told to always boil it) and we got it moments after milking. One of my mother’s neighbors has four goats and another has a cow.–Luiza Zlatovic, Vancouver. Photo by Luiza Zlatovic Photography, British Columbia, Canada, 2010.
