Ludwig’s Song – a Tale of unlikely friends
From the day he was born, high in the Andes mountains, Ludwig’s mom knew he was destined to be more than a pack animal for a loving Inca family. She named him Ludwig, because he could sing before he could trot.
Ludwig showed talent as a budding guitarist while growing up. He could even whistle a few tunes through his pearly whites. At night, he entertained the pack around the camp fires. By day he added a sweet tune to make work fun.
