I landed in Kathmandu a couple of days ago, but it’s not as romantic as it sounds. The pollution and dirt made it difficult to draw. My mouth was always full of grit and my eyes were stinging. So I went to Pohkara.
Pohkara was not as noisy and polluted,amd was surrounded by beautiful mountains.
Later in the day I went down to the lake to draw. In the middle of the lake is a small island with a Hindu temple. Today was a festival day and everyone was out at the lake in bright sarris carrying flowers and colorful offerings.
I head back to Kathmandu tomorrow. A seven hour ride on a potholed road to the next hotel, then home to Hong Kong.
