    Nice capture. We all would need some "real" physical labor to emphasize with the rest of the world.

Tibetan girl with spade

The story behind "Tibetan girl with spade"

She was standing there, likely waiting for someone in the small town of Xigar. Clutching a bag and a spade on her shoulder, ready for a day in the fields, as summer is the only time that the precious potatoes and other crops can be grown.
