Here I am in a very familiar situation—relaxing in a village house after a long day’s trek through the mountains. Sitting there cooling my heels by the cooking fire asking the people about what kinds of artifacts might be around. It was often a long process explaining who I was, where I was from and what I was looking for—repeated numerous times as people came and went to see what the commotion was in the village. I loved every moment of it. Photo by Jim Sanders circa 2007.
