Lhasa - Cultivated Landscapes
House and greenhouse, Rnga chen township. A description of one such house: In the main room there was a small black and white TV on the table where we ate, and two very low wooden benches, each barely long enough to seat two. It was very dark. The bed was small, a bit bigger than a single, covered with a faded, dusty pink linen. The wall next to the bed was lined with dirty used plastic. Behind us, several large pieces of pork hung on a string. There were sunflower seed peels on the floor, a pile of peppers in the corner, and one light bulb hanging from the ceiling. October 8, 2000.
