Namgay's guests have their meal in front of the earthen wood-fired cooking stove, inside their three storey rammed earth home. The light bulb hanging from the ceiling is a novelty because it is the first day electricity has come to this remote, mountain village of Shingkhey, Bhutan as well as the surrounding region. (Supporting image from the project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.)
