This is low tourist season, the mountains are hidden behind dramatic monsoonal clouds, rains make the streets muddy. But all this means that we have the whole floor of our guest house, the best seats at the restaurants, and rainbows.
This huge rainbow appeared on the rooftop of the Dragon Guest House last night. It looked as though it ended at the Boudha stupa, but the new buildings that have popped up all around the Dragon have obscured our view from the hotel.
The monsoons are late in coming, the streets of Boudha are newly paved in stone, business may be slow, but new places are opening, new buildings are everywhere.
Send me a photo of your pet and I will give it to 3 endangered Nepali signboard artists who will paint it on metal using synthetic enamel. Each portrait is approximately one foot square. Your satisfaction is guaranteed as you pay nothing until you decide which of the 3 portraits you prefer. The 3 artists are all paid fair trade wages in any case. The portraits you don't buy are offered at museum shops, art galleries and on-line.
