Nepal 8

Namche Bazaar is the primary settlement of the Khumbu region of Nepal. From old photos, one can tell it was pretty modest until fairly recently. The tourist trade has caused some pretty explosive growth, sprouting hotels (with showers!) and restaurants and shops selling all variety of items tourists might want. The photo above is from one of those shops. I guess you might just decide, "those big pink pills look good. Let's go for a packet of those, please!" Or perhaps to people with more pharmacological experience than your correspondents, those white tablets are instantly recognizable as some particular item or brand.
