I don’t know how it happened, but yesterday afternoon I ended up in an Indian slum, with a two-month old baby in my arms (I’ve never held a baby before, I was a bit scared I was going to break it), being shown around by a group of excitable kids.
Today so far has been spent in the company of my digital camera for once. (Then it ran out of battery and I remembered why I love the 35mm one instead.) Anyway, I’ve got a new thing for totally out of focus photographs, so I switched it to manual focus and went crazy. Probably going to regret this when I actually see the photographs on my iPad. Oh well.
If I wasn’t actually here, and someone described Kathmandu to me, it would probably sound like my idea of a nightmare, to be honest. Having space is such a luxury.
Today is a sad day, because my Moleskine finally ran out of pages. I’ve moved onto to defacing a battered old notebook I picked up in Pokhara for 50Rs… Not quite the same as a super expensive (but totally worth it) Moleskine.
*mint tea love. Plant a new mint plant when I’m home.
