Here are a couple of Nepali metal fabricators unloading from the truck. They fabricate oven vents, mail boxes, anything you need out of metal. Anyone want their pet painted on a little mailbox/piggy bank? I put this one in here to show how attractive Nepali men are.
We celebrated the Cricket World Cup finals by watching in one of our favorite Tandoori restaurants here in Boudha. India won for the first time in 28 years, besting the favorite Sri Lanka. There were lots of cheers that evening.
The Tridevi Fast Food Restaurant includes such delicious treats as Paneer Tika, Paneer Butter Masala, Saag Paneer and a mix of garlic naan and tandoori roti (clockwise from lower left). All mouth-wateringly good and all priced at about 80NR each ($1.15 USD).
Kathmandu would not be Kathmandu without dancing to Desmond (in center, in blue) and his ever-changing group of musicians. Monday nights at the Upstairs Jazz are always a treat. Load-shedding (mandatory electricity cuts of 16 hours daily) make electric guitars and amps a problem here. But musicians play on. And I dance along to the music.
Again, here's a shot of the fabulous Boudhanath Stupa, looking as beautiful as always, glowing in the sun. I tried to capture the playful wind tickling the Stupa's eyebrows, but alas, my camera is not fast enough. I may spring for a better camera next time!
Stay tuned. More tomorrow.
I am back in Nepal for the 9th Danger Dog trip and am accepting commissions now. I'll be back to the states in early June, just in time for Father's Day presents.
HOW TO ORDER
To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of paintings and three people will get work. Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint. These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.
Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front. If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case. Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!
Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting.
