Thamel is one of my favorite places in Nepal.  Thamel is a network of streets in downtown Kathmandu that is one continuous winding bazaar of sorts.  Though it’s crowded with tourists and upper-class hippies desperately trying not to make eye contact with each other for fear of looking unoriginal , spending the time talking to any of the locals will give you sense of the uniqueness of these streets.

The night before I flew out of Nepal to Hong Kong I had the chance to quickly go out with my strobes and grab a few shots around the district.  It was a blast, but was cut short by a sudden onslaught of food poisoning and low batteries.
