Sherpa Woman – Bodnath Stupa – Katmandu – Nepal

Sherpa Woman

Around Bodnath Stuppa in Kathmandu (Nepal) this woman was carrying her load the way Sherpa does; actually I am not sure if she is an actual Sherpa, maybe everyone carries loads that way in Nepal regardless of the origin.

Second paying portrait; this Sadhu and his mate did some hard bargaining about it.As I said on the other post; the Sadhus are living on charity and expect to be paid when portrayed, so this is fair. Asking 10 EUR in a country like Nepal is a bit exaggerated, I ended up giving them 20 Ruppiah each, i think it’s fair but they were not over the moon. Anyway, I don;t like bargaining so these were the last Sadhus’ picture of the holidays.

Saddhus – Durbar Square – Kathmandu

First time in Nepal, first day in Kathmandu, first time I tip to take a picture. I was warned though that the Saddhus are living on charity and expect to be paid when portrayed. These ones were pretty cool, I had no change as just arrived I gave them 10 Indian Ruppiah, which amount at a plate of Momo (Local dumplings) bought in the street.

Site under construction

My account reached one hundred thousand (100000) views on Flickr this week, probably nothing to be too proud about, surely a big part of it have not even been seen. But yet, some have, so thank you flickr.

“Site Under Construction”, at Marina Bay Financial Center (MBF) in Singapore.

On the way to my new office MBF Tower 2, the construction continues. Tower 3, maybe 4 ? I don’t know – don’t care really. But nice shot opportunities.
