This guy looked amazing. He is a holy man. The Holy Men in Kathmandu will gladly pose for you and happily give you a blessing.
Then they will happily accept expect a donation.
Sure it diminishes the blessing a little, but it makes for a great memory!

This guy will sell you fish. Eat it at your own risk. 😎

The market stalls in Kathmandu are a little different than those in Delhi. The are contained behind
these fabulous old style doors. It does make more room for the customers on the sidewalk.

Washing laundry in a very dirty river seems slightly counterproductive – but I cast no stones.

This looks like hard work. Note to self: “I am thankful for my life, I am thankful for my life.”

Isn’t it great that childhood is universal – boys will be boys. These guys were having a great time!

This little boy was laying on the sidewalk. His parents were sitting next to him with an empty box.
They were hoping for donations. The sign in front of them said that he cannot move his body on his own at all.
The doctors have determined that something is wrong with his brain.
They need help for his medical care. It was heartbreaking.

Amazing.

There are flowers everywhere. They are colorful and fragrant. Fabuloso!
I would love to visit the village where all of these were grown. That would be an amazing thing to see.

    Everything looks incredible. I am especially bemused by the young fellow who is standing there, with his pants around his knees. Just sort of letting them hang out there. LOL
