Another year, another picnic. Since 2007, Norlha has prided itself with offering a yearly, three day picnic to all its employees and their families. Tibetans consider that experiencing nature at the height of its beauty, when the pasture is a carpet of wildflowers, days are long and the weather mild, is the ultimate form of enjoyment. Preparations are made well before, making a budget, shopping for food, choosing the location and installing the tents. Chores are divided and games are planned.
This year, the picnic took place on the favorite spot, the table top winter pasture above the workshop. The animals are far away in the summer pasture and flowers are blooming everywhere. Norlha’s nomad yak hair tent is pitched to provide shade and shelter in case of rain. Another, lighter picnic tent is pitched nearby for guests. For three days from morning to sundown, Children played, songs were sung, dances danced, games played, feasts planned, organized and consumed in the spirit of relaxation and simple pleasures.
