Thank you Malgo for looking into my trash bin ;-)
The only people who could have been in that photo were my guide and driver, and I didn't want them there.
And considering that the only points had...

To saxo042: radera

Hej och tack.
Jag tog faktiskt bort en cykel, men resten tyckte jag passade in ganska bra.

Hello Ourania,
Now I remember that photo very well. I complimented it for being such an original and creative composition (some words like that) and noted that I first thought the tray was a...

To kasianowak: locals

Thank you Kasia for your comments,
Maybe the less affluent locals are actually paid to walk back and forth in front of the temples just to look picturesque and attract more tourists with cameras.:D...

To serp2000: like Tibet

Thank you Serghei,

To emka: thank you Malgo

Hello Malgo, thanks for your critiques.

Already in 1972 it was very hard to avoid having a tourist in a photo in central Kathmandu. I usually had to look around carefully to see that no American...

As you are probably aware of there are already hundreds and hundreds of photos of the Taj Mahal on TE. It will be hard to find a new angle, but I wish you good luck- ;-)

Just for fun I checked randomly that in the morning, Central European time, of December 6, 2008, one page of photos was filled in 23 minutes.

To saxo042: mörk

Hej och tack,
Jag gjorde en ljusare version också, liksom en med tydligare detaljer i det mörka, men jag tyckte att den här versionen gjorde färgerna varmare och fylligare.
Men mycket hänger väl på...

Thank you Mariusz,
My memory is not always so good. Although I generally remember every journey I ever made the details are usually blurred. Going back 40 years or more, like here, I would be lost...

To emka: thank you Malgo

Hello Malgo, thanks for your comments.

I was not "delicate" in Kirtipur, I just...

Thank you Bev for your kind words,

I don't usually think twice about taking pictures of people as long as it's in the "public sphere" and they are not in an embarrassing or humiliating situation....

Thanks Kasia for your kind comments,

My diary doesn't mention what happened when I went to pick up my bike. If the kids were still around I guess they got themselves a rupee each (or maybe one to...

Thank you John for your kind comments.

Thank you Serghei,

Hej Boa och tack för kommentarerna.

Thank you again Kasia.
