Nepal 9

Welcome to flag week!

If you've ever been somewhere that hippies live, "work," or frequent, you have probably seen Tibetan prayer flags. On the plus side, they're a cheap way to add some color to an otherwise drab office space. Sadly, science has proven that displaying Tibetan prayer flags in your office does not have a statistically significant chance of resulting in a free Tibet. Apologies if you, dear reader, happen to live in a dorm room adorned with prayer flags. We kid because we care.

In any case, these flags are all over the place in Nepal and especially along the trail up to Everest, often in landscapes and quantities more striking than your typical prayer-flag scene in the U.S. Above, flags attached to a footbridge along the trail.
