Hold on Tight

by duncanr

you need nerves of steel to drive along the Besisahar-Chamé Road in the Manang District of Nepal at the best of times, but even more so during the rainy season when waterfalls cascade over the road . . .

Vulture Restaurants

by duncanr

Nepal hosts 7 species of vultures – most of which are facing extinction following a catastrophic decline in their number as a result of kidney failure after eating meat contaminated by an anti-inflammatory drug fed to cattle by farmers

the Nepalese, however, have come up with a cunning plan to stop, and reverse, the decline in vulture numbers – http://tinyurl.com/y7yb4tqp

Man Mistakes Wife for a Monkey

by duncanr

Now I’m not saying Basanti Pun was ugly but her husband claims he shot her dead by accident, thinking she was a monkey – http://tinyurl.com/ck8k39t

[I dread to think what his mother in law looks like !]

This shooting comes just a few weeks after a father mistook his son for a monkey and killed him http://tinyurl.com/953ehh4

I’ve just crossed Nepal off my list of places to visit – no sense taking any chances !

F*cken B*stard !!!

by duncanr

Oops, sorry – no offence meant

I’m just practicing my sweary words in case I get the chance to nip to Nepal for their ‘cursing festival’

It spans 10 days every year and during those 10 days youngsters are allowed to swear at each other, hurling such curses as –

“Monkey face, I hope your sons are as ugly as frogs,” and “I hope your buffaloes die of diarrhea,”

At the end of the 10 days they then set heaps of straw ablaze and fling powdered coloured paints and water at one another

Sounds like fun !!!

More mumbo-jumbo

by NobblySan

Religion never ceases to amaze me.

At times it amuses me – at others it annoys me.

But this time it has left me disgusted.
