Caption: What’s in the Box?

Description: Green hill lodge in Sin Gomba between Dhunche and Gosaikunda. Lovely place to stay. When we arrived the parents were away taking their youngest boy to Dhunche with apparent ‘altitude sickness’, though he’d been there 10 days already and its not really that high at 3500m. So the place was being run by the kids, the eldest of which was 19.

We tried out the remote flash on the camera and put it in the box. I once saw a picture made like this, with the flash detached, taken by www.marcdriessen.nl of his then girlfriend (now wife) looking in the bread box in their kitchen at home. This boy, full of energy and theater, made the photo work.
