You’d like to think it’s a sort of school holiday job, like Australian kids collecting aluminium cans for pocket money, but I fear it’s not.
The picture of the little girl with the pigeon is so beautiful – a thousand words could be written starting with that picture and then to contrast that with the little girls and those huge sacks on their backs….as if the wings of their dreams are destined to become ossified. Lets hope not.
True, Jan. That’s Kathmandu – much that is beautiful, much that is disturbing.
