Tibetan shoemaker

Darjeeling is home to a Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Center, where victims of the Tibetan purge try to rebuild their lives.

Various handmade items - such as shawls, carpets, carvings, etc. are available for sale here. I was fascinated by the skill with which this gentleman was working on making a traditional cloth slipper, and he was amused by my efforts to try to get a stable platform which would allow me to get a sharp shot in the dim light..
