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.
