Photographer's Note

Copy what I wrote in preceding note about Kodari

Besides being a place of stunning natural beauty, it has an exotic history going back to ancient times as the starting point of the trans- Himalayan caravan route, the Nepalese equivalent of Silk Road
The 144 km Arniko Highway connecting Kathmandu with Kodari passes through magnificent river gorges and splendid mountain scenery
Kodari is just 4-5 hours’ drive away from Kathmandu

The Photo
Taken while going to cross the “Friendship Bridge” located at the border between Nepal and Tibet (Chine), that must be done on foot
Across the street- route I saw how civilization or what we, occidentals, call it, is being sweep away, for instance traditional houses by small apartments below which people rest or store wasted things on one side of the street, while a big truck with the Nepalese flag on it right side, comes from the border
There are still some dust covered prayer flags crossing the route a way to remind that religious beliefs are still kept
