Part 7 - Two Amusing Short Videos
Video Clip 1
When you visit a school in Nepal, the students and teachers welcome you with flowers and Alta or Mahawar, which is a red dye used as a welcome symbol Alta was originally produced from LAC though later it was replaced with synthetic dyes. I think I got a little bit more than the dot they intended to place on my forehead... It also took me a day of heavy scrubbing to get it off.
Video Clip 2
I would like to name this short video clip... "My WiFi is not working, could you send someone to fix it"? These incredible contraptions of electric wires attached to poles are prominent throughout Kathmandu and in Nepal in general. It is quite amazing that many of these poles survived the horrendous earthquakes on April 25 and May 12. The monkeys also use the lines to walk from one end of the street to the other!!
