The work in the fields is mostly reserved to women, where men instead play a supervisory role. These women work every day, eight hours a day, for a daily wage of 220rupees (3 euro!).. Hard work and a humble income does not grant them even the luxury of being able to buy work shoes... so you will see the most of them go barefoot. Has been definitely a exquisite meeting.. despite their life is certainly not easy, they have shown us a beautiful welcome.
Amused by the many attentions and photos, with these beautiful and genuine smiles, they shared their tea break (what else otherwise), offering us tea and making us proudly taste what they had cooked the day before during a religious festival (a good sweet rice). Gone these 20 minutes of relax with tea, rice and photographs, they went back to their job with these huge bags over their heads, walking fast down through the valley... strictly barefoot. Really sweet women.
