Tibetan nomad women making cheese from fresh curds and whey.

I lived with these milkmaids for one night. I got to eat some of the curds and whey and some cheese. These women are nomads and they live in these tents but it’s not their homes. They lived down the mountain, which I was headed up. You can’t stand up in these tents for more than a second or your taken over by the smoke from the fire. Your eyes water so bad and your breath is stolen until you make it to the door. You can just imagine what I smelled like after this, I couldn’t get the smoke smell out for a few washings.
