Photographer's Note

Everything in most of the mountains of Nepal is carried from a strap over the head, including these heavy beams. Nepal has 2 main roads, one north-south, one east-west. Anywhere far you travel by bus is on one of these roads or the other, or a primitive local road. The rest of Nepal uses this time honored tradition of transport. The Himalayas are steep, with often rough narrow paths, endless suspension bridges and huge landslides. Some "coolies" can carry twice their body weight, barefoot or in rubber flip flops. (Since it rained most of this trek, I finally just wore flip flops myself, as streams came down most paths anyway....) Smilng faces, outstanding natural beauty everywhere. Behind the man is the Kali Gandaki river bed.
