The big, the small, the young, and the very very old. The mountain is on the Annapurna range...it's a huge one. The detail is from the corner of a Buddhist temple at Kopan Monastery, near Kathmandu. The little boy is from a day care I worked at...he was playing with some broken sunglasses he found on the ground (puts the American kid with his huge chest of plastic store-bought toys into different perspective...). The old man is actually Mongolian...he was visiting the hospital for back pain. He was 82, ancient in a country where the average life expectancy is 60 years old. And he walked the many miles to the clinic...
