Night 6 - Snowed in     Overnight in a Ghyaru kitchen

I stumble half-asleep into a typical Tibetan interior, an open hearth and fire blazing in the middle of the room, three scruffy children sitting hunched in front of the flames, hands outstretched, palms absorbing the heat like miniature solar panels. The glow of the flickering flames illuminates faces in the dark room as they stare sleepily into the fire, clothes dirt-brown, hair standing on end, coated in dust.
