AN OUTDOOR "TOBACCO BARN" OF ANDORRA Bunches of tobacco are hanging on a shady corner of the house to dry. Tobacco and smuggling were once synonymous terms in Andorra. To-day, smuggling of tobacco and mules across the frontiers is not so profitable be cause of exchange fluctuations since the World War. But tobacco is still a "money crop" and the best lands are given over to it. Cigars and cigarettes are manufactured in the homes and in a few local tobacco factories.

Then the sheep must leave the mountains and trek north or south for home. Most ofthe Spanish sheep are guarded by Andorra shepherds, who live high inthe mountains with the flocks during thesummer months.
