Tea in Tavan Bogd

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by heather Dorsey

This photo was taken in Tavan Bogd Mongolia were we had stopped in at this home to have tea. The son kept a safe distance from the traveling strangers but never let us out of his gaze. This photo captures the very essence of a Kazhk home environment...looking at the photo you can capture the hint of smoke from the dung burning firplace and the natural light peering through the windblasted window pane. Looking back on this photo transports me back into the home on the steppes of Mongolia.
