Beautiful shot! Love the colors. As others have said, they looks so happy…infectious!
They look so pleased and happy 🙂 Lovely shot with great colours!
Love it! They look so happy, and it’s just so colorful!
What strikes me is that in the midst of what we in the west would call abject poverty, these women are all smiles. I think we in the west have all our priorities wrong. We by and large spend so much of out time and our lives trying to gain material goods and in doing so affect our health. for the worse and when we end our lives we wonder why we’re not happy and lament that we didn’t do what was really in our hearts. I think we can learn a lot from ladies like these.
Amen Matthew. You so perfectly echo my sentiments. I am in the middle of crafting a post for Huffington Post saying precisely what you just said, and further explaining that this is exactly why I no longer want to live in the U.S. Dn’t get me wrong, I love my cuntry and am grateful to be an American citizen, but like you, I think we have our values all wrong.
Those ladies are so colourfully dressed and lovely smiles – wouldn’t mind trying one of their rice rings either
You would love those rings, Heather!
What’s always amazed me is the great food that can come out of a “kitchen” where the cook sits on the floor in front of an open fire or a one burner hot plate that sticks out of the top of an LP tank. Also, there’s usually no running water (maybe a faucet outside) or electricity.
Hi Steve: You are so right. My adopted Nepali little sister prepares dinners for a house full with only an LP gas two-burner tabletop cooker. Really amazing!
What beautiful colors!
Hi Andi: The colors in Nepal are so amazing. They put together patterns and colors that we would never dare do in the U.S. but somehow it always looks perfect on them!
