Architecture of Pokhara: New versus Old

Pokhara, set around beautiful Lake Fewa, changes drastically every time we visit.

A new building buts up against an older one here.   Looks like the back yard has been taken over by a graceless monstrocity as well.  

Some older Nepali gentlemen relax on the porch of their small traditional home as it is dwarfed by new construction all around.

Some new architecture is worse than others.

This one has an over-wrought (iron) charm.   Many new buildings can be compared to wedding cakes.

The geese and ducks enjoy the water under the bridge near this traditional home in Pokhara.

The water buffaloes enjoy the cool water too. 


I have written posts in previous years about Pokhara and its architecture.   Click here and see the changes for yourself.


This is an example of the Danger Dogs fair trade art project.   Your pet can become a Danger Dog or Cat.   Find out more below.

Please check out the Nepal Dog YouTube Channel:

You will be happy you did!

Stay tuned.   More tomorrow.

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!


I am back in Nepal for the 11th Danger Dog trip and am accepting commissions now.   I'll be back to the states in late September with your orders.


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 or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.
