Sheep in Madrid

Six hundred years ago, Spain’s monarchy first allowed shepherds to move their livestock based on the seasons.

On Sunday of this year, there was a rural feel in Madrid, Spain, as shepherds herded over 2,000 sheep for the Fiesta de la Trashumancia. In 1993, people resurrected this festival to celebrate shepherds moving their flocks for the winter. Madrid’s mayor welcomes the sheep, and people pay him to let them through.

Difficult words: monarchy (the king or queen and other rulers of a country), rural feel (when a place feels traditional and closer to nature, like a small town or a farm), resurrect (resume, start something again).
