Women from the highlands in Bhutan

Women from the highlands in Bhutan sit next to a bridge. I met these women while on a trip to Bhutan. I bought some dehydrated yak cheese from them and eventually one of their hats after they had me try on one of them. They (with the help of a guide/translator) shared about their lives and their culture.
