Info

Villagers farm terraced land on the hillsides near their homes, growing wheat, rice, chilies, and potatoes, depending on the season. The wheat harvest, now ending, is assigned to the women. But the men do other jobs. A neighbor gathers the chaff to burn it while Nalim and Namgay's son-in-law Sangay Khandu plows the fields below with bulls. Shingkhey Village, Bhutan. From Peter Menzel's Material World: A Global Family Portrait.
