Village visit, India 2015

When visiting the village there were farm animals, running loose and others tethered.  Interesting looking people in the village and most of the women wore traditional clothes.  During the time in the village we visited a village home where the mother made tea for us on her outside wood fire. The family consisted of mom and dad, and three kids, two of whom were teenagers. The father was off at work.  All the kids go to school. They lived in a two room house with two beds and apparently the sleeping strategy was on a first come first served basis. The mother is instrumental in the women's co-op that produces printed fabrics, quilts and a great variety of ready clothes. She was one of the founding members of the co-op. She made masala tea with the appropriate milk and sugar and it was really good.
