Nepal

 

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world with much of its population living on about $750.00 US dollars a year.  Over the last 10 years political uncertainty and lack of foreign investment due to civil strife and labor concerns has delayed economic growth.  This collection of photographs deals with the common life of Nepal.  They range from the slums of Kathmandu to the small villages of Gorkha near Tibet.
