  •   backdoormedicine There is plenty of grain around the world for people, yet we first world privileged colonizers don't get that eating meat and dairy take food away from others.......We are so consciously selfish with our diets while others starve. I pray his family has success with their crops and that these seeds are not GMO. 4w

arishapiro In the Sundarbans, the first step to make a meal is to collect firewood. Most people don't have refrigerators, so cooking happens 3 times a day. For more pics from the Sundarbans, check out NPR's "On the Road" tumblr.
