Why I Love Nepal: Native Danger Dog signs from Pokhara!

Why I Love Nepal: Pokhara


We woke to the sight of the Annapurna Mountain Range right out our window.   Pokhara has been lovely this time of year, raining gently in the afternoon and clear in the mornings and evenings.

Again taken from right outside our door, we have Dauligiri on the left, Machupuchhre (aka Fishtail Mountain) in the center, and more of the Annapurna's on the right.  What a wake up call!

Here is a sneaky self portrait.   If I was to get a massage here, I would likely choose this shop just for their Art Brut signboard.

Pema and his Spitz await customers at Pema's Tibetan Kitchen.   Spitz's are very common here in Pokhara.   There are three just in the field outside our window.

There is currently an Eastern European group that is practicing yoga on the rooftop of the Green Tara.   They are very fit and the instructions are in English.  I wish I liked yoga, or I would join them.  

I was able to drop off some photos with Jit Gurung of Munal Arts.

Jit and his wife enjoy a romantic moment in the foothills of Nepal.   This is an almost life-sized photo printed on vinyl flex.   By the way, I noticed that Jit is left-handed.

Jit designed this quite arresting anti-smoking sign.   Often when I come in, Jit will be sketching.

The first finals are in.   Lola the Coton de Tulear, Scamper the Norwich Terrier and Dwight the Dog, all by Sufraj Khadka.  (left to right).

You will be happy you did!

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.  


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 ampage1@gmail.com or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.

Let's keep these artists painting.

Hi Michelle! Hey!! Thanks for the chicken story. If I hadn't seen it myself in real life, I might have thought differently ... but I'm over that now... Brilliant to have your own show on YouTube. Again, without knowing it, you've come to my rescue with the answer. I'll forward an email(mobile2mobile). Meanwhile, looking forward to more videos, and being one of your YouTube subscribers. Much love, Happy trails! Krystina
