Wheat on the third floor storage area of Namgay and Nalim's house, Shingkhey Village, Bhutan. The family of subsistence farmers lives in a 3-story rammed-earth house in the hillside village of Shingkhey, Bhutan. Nalim and her daughter Sangay work as partners; they take turns caring for the children and working in their mustard, rice, and wheat fields. Namgay, who has a hunched back and a clubfoot, grinds grain for neighbors with a small mill his family purchased from the government. From Peter Menzel's Material World Project that showed 30 statistically average families in 30 countries with all their possessions.
