15 February 2010, Kathmandu, Nepal –
The following few photos are a sample of my first month in Nepal. The rate of festivals in Nepal, political, religious, public and private events is somewhat overwhelming for the senses. This is a random selection of a few moments scattered throughout the month, from Hindu’s Shivaratri to Lhosar, the Lunar New Year celebrations held by the large Tibetan diaspora in Nepal a few days ago via to Buffalo preparation that amazed me during my first week here. Features ‘Trash Town‘ and ‘Water Valley‘, are longer term endeavours on the challenges Nepal is facing on security, governance and environmental levels.
