Living on Mountains of Tea - Darjeeling, India

Two school kids walking home in the mountainous town of Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. These kids live amidst ubiquitous tea fields and beautiful himalayan peaks in the distance. The mountain visible on the horizon is Kangchendzonga (or Khangchendzonga depending on who you ask), the third tallest mountain in the world (Mount Everest is farther west). This region of India is quite distinct since it lies so close to Nepal.
