This picture shows a Nepalese porter in Kathmandu. This is quite a familiar scene around the city. There are long strings of these men and women carrying anything and everything through the streets always in the same manner.
The women in the hills carry 55kgs of grain and I saw a girl of not more than 10 carrying a load that I would be unable to lift of the ground. Remember the Sherpas? This is Everest country and poverty has driven them to take up such a arduous job. Hat’s off to these hard working people.
