Holy men

Here’s an interesting picture from Nepal. This is from Durbar Square—the old city—in Kathmandu. These two guys leapt into a pose so that I could take a picture. And then asked for payment (which I gave).

National shout-out to my hometown

I went to Washington, DC, not too long ago. At the new Newseum (cleverly, a museum about the news), one of the bathrooms has tiles in it with various error corrections that have appears in newspapers around the country. I’m so proud!

Although I’d planned to look at flowers this weekend, that didn’t pan out. I took a walk around the city instead. Sometimes the city has some sad sights.

A little more Nepal

Until the posting mojo comes back, I may as well just post photos at random. Here are some colorful lanterns (I think) that were hanging in a shop near our hotel in Nepal.

I’ve obviously lost all sense of routine about this. For now, at least.

What can I say? But the moon was full the other night. And it was a little cloudy. Here’s a picture of this over my neighborhood. From my apartment, even.

Do you think the people across the street became suspicious as I set up my camera on the tripod in front of the window?

Over a month

I know it’s been over a month. There’s no excuse. I plan to start it back up on a more regular basis.

But for now...
I just want to report that today’s commute sucked. I sat on the V while two Fs went by (in the past, I’ve switched to the F, only to sit and wait while the V took off—thank goodness I avoided that today). And it was crowded. There was subway singing I didn’t want to hear. Pregnant women to be dodged. People spilling magazine parts onto the floor.

And my reward?
I’m at work.

Why the hippies loved Nepal

There’s a moment when, looking at the overgrowth on the side of the road, it dawns on you what it is. And then you look around. And then you realize just how much—I mean, really how much—there actually is. Everywhere.
