I visited my friends in the small village of Azerbaijan, one of former Soviet Republics, and was taking pictures of women knitting rug. The village is in the middle of nowhere and people make their living by selling handmade rugs that cost a fortune, yet they live how they use to about 500 years ago. Little children are very mature - they can go shopping by themselves, or ride the donkey.
