After a hard day's work using a water buffalo to help them plow rural rice paddy fields nestled beneath green hills and fantastic karst topography of limestone pinnacles and spires, two hardy Chinese women farmers are on route home to their ancient village. One woman holds the reins of their beast of burden, while the other shoulders a counter-balanced load----her young son, concentrating on his tasty snack, in one hand-woven bamboo basket, and her tools of the trade in the other.

My husband and I were honored to be guests at the wedding (both the Western and traditional Cantonese Chinese ceremonies) of Pauline Chung and Vincent Tam, a Hong-Kong Chui Chow couple. For Chinese families, marriage is a important event of lifelong significance with numerous rituals and taboos. Pauline stands outside the door of her tiny apartment in a crowded high-rise housing estate in Tsim Sha Tsui, deep in pensive contemplation of her upcoming future. Powdered and rouged, dressed in red brocade, she carries a red silk umbrella (red represents happiness, success, good fortune and beauty). The umbrella symbolizes the bride bringing many descendants to the grooms family and wards off lurking evil spirits. The umbrella will be carried by Pauline's professional maid of honor, a walking encyclopedia of wedding etiquette, on route to her groom's home.

My husband Earl and I watched, silently, as a squinting Oroqen hunter, dressed in the furs and skins of his previous hunts and a roe deer fur hat with the antlers attached for camouflage, his antique rifle with bayonet set upon a branch tripod hacked out of the dense forests of the Da Hinggan Mountains, aimed at a bear who escaped. If he had been killed, the Oroqen would have honored the bear with a number of ceremonies. Heilongjiang (manchuria) Northeastern China©Earl Kowall

After a hard day in the saddle hunting on horseback for game with the Oroqen men, I, Nazima Kowall (center of the picture), wearing the woman's traditional skin-and-fur garb and beaded headgear, relax with two affectionate females who have made me a ceremonial member of their semi-nomadic minority.

During an afternoon respite, my husband Earl and I were invited to our Kashmiri friend's house for a steaming cup of fragrant kahwa, a healthy, specialty green spiced tea prepared with slivered almonds, cardamom, cinnamon sticks and saffron poured out of a traditional samovar and served with savory snacks. The two men in the background carry on a conversation as one smokes a hookah pipe. Srinagar, Kashmir, India ©Nazima Kowall

My husband and I, along with 100 other guests, attended and partook of a traditional Kashmiri wazwan or feast (waza refers to the trained professional chefs whose skills are passed down through the generations and wan means a shop overflowing with meat and vegetables). The four wazas had slaughtered lambs and chickens according to Muslim hallal law then sliced, diced, cubed and boiled the meat to produce 54 delicious dishes that reflected Kashmir's perilous history and cultural influences---Central Asian heartiness, Mughal richness and Indian spiciness. In the picture, the wazas are pounding prime lean lamb with wooden mallets into a textureless mass, then used other advanced techniques to produce the pinnacle of Kashmiri cuisine---delicious Gushtaba.
