Countryside

Note the terracing on steep hills; this was one of the efforts to combat famine in the 90s by expanding agricultural output, with dire ecological consequences and loss of crops due to flooding. These photos were taken on a Sunday, the one day of rest in the work-week. These (and certain other photos) were taken surreptitiously, as our minders didn't want laborers in the countryside to be photographed.
