A little boy peers around the door frame to see the visitors who are with his mother, enjoying some fresh yak yogurt and bread in his home in Murghab district, Tajikistan. Although the families in the area are very poor, they insist on sharing some food with any visitors who are passing through their village.
Location: Ali Chur, Murghab district, Gorno Badakshan Autonomous Oblast, Tajikistan
