On December 2013 I was in Kathmandu to follow a new project on electrical transmission facilities in Trishuli area.
I was glad having the opportunity to visit this country especially for two reasons.
First, as a Engineer, I am really happy to support the development of the hydro-power potential of this country, which is trying to overcome a severe energy crisis, started already in the year 2008.
Second, as a Vipassana meditator, I had the opportunity to practice in a region very near to the origin of Buddha, which strengthened my motivations on following the wheel of Dharma in daily life.
Maybe because of the tight work agenda or maybe because of the inner peace of the moment, my stay in Kathmandu was not really focusing on photographic issues and my camera laid in the safe box of the hotel room almost all the time. I know, I should be not proud of that as a photographer :-).
Fortunately, I had with me the iphone, which I agree is not a professional photographic tool, but in this case gave to me the opportunity to provide some images for this blog and for future memories.
The following set of pictures are coming from the dinner I had the first evening after the arrival in Kathmandu, in a cozy Nepalese restaurant.
