WHERE TO NEXT?
Basti Derawar, Cholistan Desert, Punjab


Two Cholistani camel herders wonder what to do next as the wind stirs up the sand, portending the arrival of a storm. The people of Cholistan are primarily semi-nomadic camel and goat herders. Camels are highly valued, as they are used for transportation and carrying loads. The wool derived from the skin of camels is used to weave blankets called falsies.
