Photographer's Note

while on lake pangong, we stayed with a ladakhi family for the night at Shashukul.

The ladakhi house and family revolve around the kitchen where all social events take place. It is always organized in the same manner, with wall shelves carrying the pots, plates, and so on plus the central fireplace. During the winter, this family area is the only warm place in the house and by definition where the family stands... people rarely bathe in the winter for both lack of hot water and heating in the house. Bedrooms are usually around 0 to 2°C... that makes some healthy nights!

This was one of the girls of the house. shot taken without a flash. Dim light from the outside...
I know it is a bit centered but please give me a break with that silly rule saying that it should not be! I like it this way... haha!
