Posts Tagged With: Pokhara


After my second trek through the Himalayas I spent a couple of weeks recovering in a small restaurant which, from the outside at least, has little to distinguish it from the many other restaurants that line the sides of Phokara’s main street.  I spent day after day there playing chess with a German friend and enjoying the only French cuisine for a 1,000 miles, compliments of a French expatriate who had married a Nepalese woman.  In the early evenings intense storms would often pass over the city and we would enjoy the rain and relief from the afternoon heat that accompanied it.  I looked up from my game only for a moment the day I caught this image, but in that moment the sounds of the falling water and feel of the storm charged air seemed to take concrete shape.
