from msnbc week in pictures 23-30 august 2007 (thomas peter / reuters).

“We walk the line: Children train on the tightrope in Tsovkra-1, some 3,000 meters above sea level in Russia’s Caucasus region of Dagestan, on Monday, Aug. 20. For children in this remote mountain village on Russia’s southern fringe, after-school games means balancing on a wire suspended one story above the ground. By a quirk of history so far back that in time [sic] no one really remembers the reason, nearly every man, woman and child in Tsovkra-1 can walk the tightrope.”
