Here are the children who grow up in the saddle with their nomadic parents or become as agile as the mountain goats they tend. A boy plays chess on the ground with his shepherd grandfather. A teenager tends her father's pottery shop. At festivals a child plays hide-and-seek, behind yellow parasols, and stilt dancers wait to compete.
