... the eyes. Often to complete one design (see photos) will take 3 months. Now that is patience and dedication! The next stop was to this old house where they make cheese. Using cow milk, they make cheese and then wind it around some bamboo to dry. This is then taken to the marked the next day to sell. I got to try making it. The lady definitely made it look easier than it is but in the end I managed to make some cheese and wind it around the pole. We then took ...

All my senses felt as though they were obliterated upon walking in the public toilets….not to mention the fact that there were no doors or cubicles but rather just a long drain with some people squatting over it.
