A sweet smile!

Day 192

MOMOS

These were one of our favorite treats during our Nepal visit.  Filled with cabbage, etc.

Delicious!

Day 174

CORNBREAD – Nepali style!

This morning I went to a local hotel (restaurant) and had a great breakfast of bhaji (spicy veg) and nan-ruti (one kind of Bengali bread) for 20 tk (30 cents U.S.D).  I decided to show you the cornbread as they fix it in Nepal.  This piece of bread, made with corn meal,  is hollow.  and  is quite tasty.

Fresh and Tasty

SARA & REGINA, friends we met on the Annapurna trail, at a rest stop between Pokhara and Kathmandu, and again later in Kathmandu.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to my wife, Alice.

Now I am again living with an older woman.  I follow close behind her, since I will turn 61 in August!

Here she is having fun with a Nepali lady, likely about all the photos I was taking!

Having fun!

Day 169

PENCIL TRICKS

I stopped at this boy’s home and gave all the children a pencil.  This young lad found many things to do with his pencil.  Here he is sticking it up his nose!  Little boys are creative aren’t they!

DRAGONFLY

I spied this dragonfly as we were trekking.

Nice insect!

NEPALI LADY

This lady was walking down the path beside where we were taking a break.  I had just given some children some pencils.  Her and her friend kind of stopped and hung around.  Our guide then told me that they also want a pencil.  They stayed around awhile and she enjoyed the little butt of a cigarette she had left.  It was down to 1/3 inch but when she dropped it, she picked it up and was going to enjoy it to the end!

Enjoying her smoke!
