15 days of Kathmandu
« on: February 07, 2020, 09:42:36 »
This must be the 5th or 6th time i come to Kathmandu or Nepal, first time '73 or '74 the one time before in 2000, imagine much has changed since then.
From small towns dotted in a rich green valley to an overcrowded smog polluted dirty large city within that same valley.
Still the people are nice friendly non agressive.
Like it's said  'Welcome to Nepal'.

It looks to be a place that is not shy about color. Great series Fons!

Thanks for sharing Fons.....  I did visit Nepal in 2007 and have nice memories......just upgraded from a D80 to a D300 before the trip... did a fly-over of Mount Everest and also visited Nagarkot where the Himalayan range could be viewed.... Thanks Fons for giving me the opportunity to contribute to your post...

Fons, your images are full of information well worth trying to decode.  I like the vivid colors as well.  Thank you for sharing!

Fons, very nice selection of images,  I agree that they are very colourful.   I have not been since early 1970's and lasting impression was dust.   Thanks for sharing.
