Nepal 6: Buildings

In Katmandu old & traditional sit side-by-side with modern. Some of these old buildings look like they are ready to collapse, but are still occupied...

Nepalese are not afraid of colour!

The traditional woodwork is really beautiful.

These are part of the temple of the living goddess

In the country everything changes. The houses are mostly simple but beautiful

This is the typical farm-house. The houses are covered with orange coloured mud-paint for Diwali (Festival of lights). It wears off over time and are freshly painted every year. We were there about a week after Diwali

A typical farm set-up, usually surrounded by rice-paddies.

The lodge where we stayed in the Chitwan National park
