The day after the electrifying celebration in the village, life returns to normal. Singing as they walk, Bangam (third from the right) joins other village girls in collective women's work: cleaning out the manure from the animal stalls under the houses and spreading it on the fallow fields before the men plow. All wear the traditional kira worn by all Bhutanese women: a rather complicated woven wool wrap dress. Men wear a robelike wrap called a gho. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 45). The Namgay family living in the remote mountain village of Shingkhey, Bhutan, is one of the thirty families featured, with a weeks' worth of food, in the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.
