To holmertz: Boudhanath vs Swayambhunath

Thank you Gert,

No, it's not possible that you haven't been to the Boudhanath Stupa.
Perhaps the site wasn't as touristy in the 1970s and there weren't that many shops or restaurants around the...

Hi Gert and Claude,

To worldcitizen: Presumably not filled on site

Thank you Brenda,

I'm afraid I will disappoint you but I didn't stay that long to see what they did with the pots.
I guess they were brought away to be sold elsewhere.
Presumably these pots...

Thank you Krzysztof,

The people on the blue canvas are threshing.

After reaping, threshing...

To holmertz: Traditions and visitors

Thank you Gert,

As far as I can judge, I think the Nepalese people have preserved their traditions well.
In Bhaktapur I haven't seen hamburger eateries or Irish pubs. I don't think they exist...

To jean113: The portals

Thank you Jean,

I'm terribly sorry but I don't remember what the function of the building in the foreground was.
It could be a house or a small temple.

However, everywhere in Bhaktapur you...

Thank you Gert,

I had a look at your pictures from 1972 taken in this region of Nepal and I notice that several women or your photos wear (at least partly) clothes in red.
It could be that the...

To emka: Thank you

Thanks for your workshop picture, Malgo,

Indeed, less boats.
Also the pier was very short.
Now there's a longer pier but you cannot see it on my pictures.

All the best!

5 tourists in Luang Prabang ? That's less than the number of foreign visitors than you find today in a remote place in Laos, I mean in a place where it is possible to stay overnight.

Thank you Gert,

To be completely correct this wasn't a beach resort. It served mainly as a waiting area for the visitors of the caves in Pak Ou, at the other side of the Mekong.
