Darjeeling and Sikkim - India 2003

10 days in the foothills of the Himalayas: Darjeeling and Sikkim in the Northeast of India. I visited the Tibetan Refugee Centre in Darjeeling and was made to feel very welcome by the Tibetans living and working there:the workshops used old techniques for woodwork, spinning, dying and weaving, as well as for sculpture.
All pictures taken with Minolta 505si and edited with Photoshop, but without altering any content.
