back from Kathmandu

Two weeks in Nepal. It has been more than one year, but in Nepal things change slowly…. Still a political chaos, still no constitution….
But I was luckely able to find some amazing objects. It took some trouble to leave the country, because of a crashed airplane of Turkish Airlines, that blocked the complete airport, and by that the complete country!! Some days delay, khe garne
