However boring the ride is, the beautiful landscape of Nepal and photogenic Nepali make it up. Along the road to Pokhara is beautiful, but not breath-taking beautiful, perhaps I have been to a lot of place of dramtic landscapes, but it does make the journey a nice ride - not the road itself, it is decades behind modern standard. But I am more attracted to by the nice Nepali people, so I took a lot less scenery, a lot more people, with just the Panasonic GF-1 and 20/1.7.
This area, of no particular significance, we stop here just to pee, but I use the GF-1 to snap a series of images for this panoramic picture. I wish then I have the SONY NEX-5 so I could have made it a lot faster and a lot more.
Quite interesting, the kids of Nepal, or in general poorer country, never being less happier because they have less? Less material but a lot more nature! And nature freedom, and I often see they are more happier. Shouldn't we all?
