Tea preparation, Kuchlak, Balochistan

Via Flickr:
This photograph must be seen within the context of its environment. This is Kuchlak, a slow town on the edge of a highway connecting Quetta with various Western cities and towns of the province. This photograph was shot over the brick kilns - these metal covers are actually vents for the hot air. They are removed from time to time to check the heat within this kiln. Therefore, when labour wishes to cook food or brew chai (tea), they simply place their kettle over any of the vents and the cooking gets done.
