Often the inside of something is even more interesting than the outside. – Sara Rosso
Here’s some pictures that represents “inside”, plus a bunch that I just throw in for fun. All these photos were shot between December 2004 – December 2005 when I spent 9 months traveling around in India on my Bullet 350 motorcycle. Most of the time was spent in in Delhi & Rishikesh, plus 3 months were I settled in a village in Nepal.
I promised you that I would translate this into English and here it is: This is a travel article I wrote for a newspaper several years ago, concerning daily life in a small village just outside Pokhara Lakeside, Nepal.
Pokhara – that’s where I’m located between sunrise and sunset these days. Where I’m at during the hours that we refer to as sleep, is somewhat unclear. I assume that I’m sleeping in the little stone house that I rent outside the city and outside the tourist area. But, as they say in Spanish:
Pregunta a las Mariposas (go and ask the butterflies).
Dette er en reiseartikkel jeg skrev for en del år tilbake som omhandler dagliglivet i en liten landsby rett utenfor Pokhara Lakeside, Nepal.
Pokhara, det er altså hvor jeg holder til mellom soloppgang og solnedgang i disse dager. Hvor jeg holder til under de timene av døgnet vi refererer til som søvn, er noe uklart. Jeg går ut i fra at jeg befinner meg sovende i det lille steinhuset jeg leier utenfor byen og utenfor turistområdet. Men, som de sier på spansk:
pregunta a las mariposas (gå og spør sommerfuglene).
The theme for WordPress’ weekly photo challenge this week is “Simple”.
That made me think of this photo I took when I lived in a small village in Nepal. The local farmers were busy planting rice in order to take advantage of all the water that pours down during rainy season.
Here’s my Nepalese neighbors busy on the rice paddies: their method & tools are simple, eco-friendly, brilliant & ancient.
