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.

At last we arrived at the Chitwan wildlife preserve where boats were waiting to take us into the swamps and forests.
