The ladies of Kathmandu

“I’d like to introduce you to the spirited ladies of Kathmandu who spend their afternoons congregating on city curbs or other action packed areas that offer front row seats to the world. Their ceaseless curiosity and fervent laughter, drowns out the bustling surroundings. And even in those rare hushed moments, when you catch them retreating into their private worlds, the scene is still captivated by their collective spirit.

As I read the headlines this week, I remember these women and many others who I was blessed to encounter during my travels. I wish their spirit to remain unwavered. My heart is with them.”
