Snapshot of Zhadan life

8 August 2010. Zhada, Tibet

Life happens a little slower in the desolate town of Zhada.

Cars waiting at the town's only gas station are outnumbered by pigs, chickens, and geese.

The town sits quietly above the Sutlej River, watching every cloud that passes by, many of which bring rain and snow even on a cozy August day.

The excitement and stress of our fieldwork are greeted by a more peaceful way of living in this tiny town.

A toast to the badlands!
