An old man at Chengu Narayam, a bit up the valley from Kathmandu. There is a great complex of Hindu temples there with few tourists. His earrings signify that he is at least 77 years and 77 days old.

We're about to board the plane for Lhasa. I won't be able to post again until we are back in Kathmandu on September 19. There will be loads of pictures. See ya later.

Well you're never fully dressed without .....your earrings, I always say! So you have to wait till you're 77+ to wear these? I can wait thank you. Terrific street portrait. Hosta la vista baby!

I'm trying to figure out how exactly you get 77/77 from his earrings, but perhaps you'll tell us later!

Two major events for me on September 19th:

1) daughter's wedding
2) your Lhasa photos!

You are really good at taking portraits, Bob! This one is no exception.

FYI, you should sell some of your photos/portraits for charity -- money to go to Tibet and Nepal, which I know are dear to your (and Caroline's) heart.

These photos of your trip are fabulous, Bob. This portrait of the old man is superb.I agree with Ming, your portraits are always superb. Enjoy Lhasa - what an experience for you. Enjoy. Look forward to the photos.
