Travels in Nepal # 66 Ox Cart Ride
After our fairly unsuccessful birding activities we walked a short distance to meet one of the local farmers. He had been organised to give us a two hour ox cart ride through the local farming areas. The fog was still quite thick and this did not make photography easy. In fact, I took very few photos on this morning. Despite the fog the journey through the farming area near Chitwan was very interesting.
The farms here a generally quite small and grow a variety of things, mainly vegetables. The farm houses are small and very basic when compared to what we are used to in Australia. Every farmyard seems to have a large collection of cattle, goats, dogs, ducks and chickens. We passed many of the women and children squatting around smoky fires in the farmyard.
