Nepal 3

Nepal proved again that, as always, the best travel pictures are of people. (And the truly great Pictures that Got Away are from encounters with interesting people when we didn't have the camera handy or, more often, didn't feel the right vibe (i.e. were too chicken) to ask if we could take their picture.) Anyway, rather than getting into a discursive essay on the etiquette of photographing strangers who don't speak the same language as you, we present the following: a picture we took, without asking per se, but perhaps after holding up the camera and smiling and getting no reaction at all and self-interestedly declaring the lack of visible objection as permission. The guys carrying stuff up the mountains in Nepal are amazing.
