Photographer's Note

Please forgive me the low quality, but it was the only photo I found that is vaguely appropriate for this festive season.

When I arrived in Nepal in November 1994, they were celebrating the Newari New Year, along with the Hindu festival of Diwali. They were also in the middle of an election campaign (if I am not mistaken, the penultimate democratic elections before the assassination of the former King and the end of an ephemeral 'democratic' period). The oldest part of Kathmandu looked like a crowded fair.

In WS's: a kind of amulet made by a street astrologist and a political demonstration.

Happy New Year!

See you next year. :-)
