TOP TWO PHOTOS FROM 2012 BLOG POSTS

I was going to post the top 30 or so but didn’t have the internet capabilities to complete in time. These are two of my favorites.  If anyone has any comments on what they would like to see in my blog in 2013, including ways to improve my posts please comment.

Happy New Year!

INCREASE OF STORAGE SPACE BY ELEVATING THE BED!

OUR HOUSE-HELPER’S MOTHER HAS A ONE-ROOM DWELLING, WHICH SHE SHARES WITH HER SON, DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AND THEIR TWO DAUGHTERS.  Much of  their cooking and serving containers are stored under the bed.  This is in one of the many Bihari camps in Bangladesh.  The fresh lavender paint gives the room a nice look.

SWEET TASTY STRAWBERRIES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE STREETS OF KATHMANDU

I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THESE STRAWBERRIES AT THIS TIME OF YEAR!  They let me taste me one, and I immediately bought a small pack to take back for Alice to taste as well.  We are enjoying our stay at the Hotel Encounter Nepal hotel.  The tub and hot water are a special treat for my wife, Alice!

A large pile of strawberries brings back childhood memories of picking 100 quart of berries on my parent's strawberry patch!

HOW NOT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS!

I HAD ALREADY CHOSEN THIS PHOTO FOR MY BLOG WHEN I REALIZED IT SHOWED A COMMON MISTAKE PHOTOGRAPHERS MAKE.  Always make sure you check out the background. It looks like the bamboo is sticking out of the lady’s head!
