(MODEL RELEASED IMAGE). Namgay (left, by fire) and his wife Nalim (right, by fire) eat a lunch of red rice and a small cup of cooked vegetables with their family and friends in the kitchen area of their earth-walled house in Shingkhey, a remote village in the mountains of Bhutan. The kitchen and adjoining rooms are often smoky because the cookstove/fireplace is inside the house and doesn't vent to the outside. Nalim says that she would like to build a kitchen in a different building but can't afford it. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 39).
