    I really like this pic. It shows the innocence of youth. I kinda worry about the two with poochy bellys, or are they hiding something underneath?

Kathmandu Angels

The story behind "Kathmandu Angels"

Nepali are poor. Very poor. That is, they have little money and luxury as we westerners know it. They are rich in ways to socialize and to enjoy themselves and somehow always manage to wear those wonderful colourful and clean clothes.
An entire family was playing in the streets when we passed, playing badminton with cheap rackets, soccer and just with each other.

These girls watched me taking some pictures and posed from a distance, without being asked, in proper Charlie’s Angels style. I took this shot and showed it to them and their day was even happier than before. Sunshine is hidden in little things.
