The Tibetan Refugee Self Help Center

One day in Darjeeling, we visited the Tibetan Refugee Self Help Center, which is a 20 minute walk from the main town, down a road that winds around the hillside.  In addition to a museum, the center houses a school, an infirmary, and various workshops for weaving, carpentry, etc.  A woman there gave me a lesson or two about natural dyes, which the center uses for its many woven goods.
