The Fish Tamer

The Fish Tamer

Dani Resines / Roger Gómez

In the pond in Franciscu's garden there are still colourful fish swimming about, but there is one which nearly always stays at the bottom. She doesn't come up to the surface like she used to. Anyone who says that fish have no memory has obviously never met Juanita the carp.
