I spent some time in Kathmandu in the late 1990's doing project evaluations for the Biodiversity Conservation Network, a US-AID funded consortium of the World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and the World Resources Institute (see Scenes From Kathmandu). In the few spare moments that I had, I would walk around the city and take pictures. This one is from a neighborhood near the Boudhanath Stupa. Lady in red (center background) draws water in what, judging from the statues and stupas, looks like a very auspicious spot. Om Mani Padme Hum.
