Nalim (in green jacket) talks to her daughter Bangum about prices before buying dried chili peppers from the vendors who line the wall at the Sunday market in Wangdi Phodrang, Bhutan. The large town is a two-hour walk from Shingkhey village. Nalim and her children and grandchildren walk there and back unless they can hitch a ride on a passing vehicle. (Supporting image from the project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.) 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.
