Adventures in India, Part 36 -- The Fields of Chitwan
After a short lunch we left the city and headed into the countryside. As we passed through villages and fields I was struck by the fact that nearly all of the workers were women. We saw few men, and those were mostly supervising the women. I asked our guide about this and he answered that most of the men had left the area seeking work in the Middle East, in India, or elsewhere.
