Tea... for 4300...



I decided to share this picture today for no particular reason, except I really love it. Obviously, from my time at the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in southern India last year. When you need to prepare tea for 4300 people in what is essentially a medieval kitchen, this is pretty much how you do it...

This was from the winter months, when the daytime temperature rarely topped 80 degrees. I can only imagine what this job is like during the summer... 100+ degrees and 100% humidity... every day.
