School pupils group photo
On the treck to the Labatama plateau in the province Daga western Bhutan we were passing a village school and joined the lesson for about one hour.
After school lessons the teacher ask to shoot this group photo.
Some pupils have a long way to school, one and a half hours climb up and one hour down to their home, every school day and under all weather conditions.
I am still keeping contact to the school named Genekha school and its principal called Chakradhar.
Two years later I came to the same school an brought a gift, a volley ball set and its necessary net.
