Photographer's Note

The Boudhanath (Buddhist) stupa in Khatmandu, a World Heritage Site, reaches 36 meters at its highest point. It is one of the largest of its type in the world. Note the eyes on the side of the stupa. The boy wears a surgical mask, probably to minimize Khatmandu's bad air quality. Update: this stupa was significantly damaged in the April 25, 2015 earthquake.
