Nepal: It's a bit like Peru

Vegetable sellers Thamel market
In Thamel, I sat down on some steps for a few moments to watch the world go by. The ladies sitting around the square selling vegetables looked very Peruvian - in fact the whole place had the feel of a Peruvian tourist town.

A chap on a motorbike sparked up a conversion by stating that I looked like the French footballer Zidane. We played ‘guess my nationality’. After photographing his son’s fantastic hat, I continued on as his father requested my email address, presumably so that he could let me know that his mother had been very sick and needed an operation. I may be dim, but I’m not stupid.
