Photographer's Note

Again Pana.
A beautiful village perched on the mountains of Hymalaias at 2448m of altitude. Far away from civilization, it takes many hours walking to get here. There's no running water or electricity. At the end of our third day of treking, we made our campsite on top of this place (see view from above in previous post) and I felt in love.
Simple people with a simple but problably hard life as it is allways in such places.
Do you remember the colors of the view from above? I didn't get to know what kind of cerials are these, but they sure make the landscape colorful and beautiful. I was fascinated by these colors, but again, they problably don't understand why...
Some of you asked about the kids working. There's a nice school that I visited and also had the chance of talking with the teacher. Most children have the chance of learning there, even if they help the parents in the fields, as you can see here.

UPDATE (thanks Sarju)
"The crop that these kids are working on is called "chow-la-yee" in the part of Himalayas I am from (I am not sure about its name, but i am sure that we make chapati from it".

So, it is called "Ramdana" or "Chua" in this part of Garhwal (Thanks Sabyasachi)

or may be "millet" (Thanks Marilyn)

Now, I'm a bit confused :))))))
