Photographer's Note

This is really nothing special exept for the fact it’s a sequel to my previous upload. Just another day in another young Nepali man’s life. And having met and spoken to quite a few young Nepali men I can make an educated guess: no employment and no future. Or, if he is lucky enough to have a job, he earns next to nothing. Most workers in Nepal get between 30 and 100 dollars…. per MONTH.

I have written more about Nepali people’s lives in the note to an earlier post. So for now I’ll just add that the top everyone’s dream is to get a job in another country. Most lucky emigrants work in the Middle East, but some travel as far as Poland.

There are recruitment agencies in Nepal that offer that kind of employment. But you have to pay a bribe of several thousand dollars. Try to save that kind of money from your 100 dollar a month wage.

The café with the symbolic name The Third World survived the earthquake. But at least the man in my 2014 photo was looking at a lovely square full of ancient buildings. In this photo you can only see the ruins of the Jagannarayan Temple.
