2012-02 Janakpur Week 1 in Photos

Here’s a selection of images from my first week in Janakpur:

Classic Grammar in Janakpur
Classic Grammar in Janakpur – next to Rooftop Restaurant “The only Choice for Smart People”
Mesmerising Chanting at Jhanaki Temple
The main street running under Ramanand Chowk has a distinctly post-appocalyptic feel…
Rehearsing the script
Calibration Film – Sonali and Sushil rehearsing the script
Suzanne Commisioning Sheets
Suzanne has upgraded her hotel room with many home comforts including specially commissioned sheets!
Curious Hotels: Janakpur
Curious Hotels dot the road on the from the airport – this is one of the strangest!
Out for a stroll on Barhabiga: Janakpur
The vast open ground of Barhabiga is a great sight on way to work in the morning
Janakpur: The Centre of town’s always crowded with cyclists and motorbikes flying past
MIRA Spirometry
The Main follow up study has many components including Spirometry which is often a challenge to explain!
Janakpur Goat Fashion
The goats are often draped with coverings – to keep in the heat? Fashion? – you be the judge
Janakpur Traffic Jam
Probably my favorite photo of the week.
Didi - Janakpur
An elderly lady asked me to take her photo whilst I was waiting for Suzanne to buy her custom sheets.
Beard Twizzle at Jhanaki Temple
An enviable moustache!
Dal Bhat Bimla's Janakpur
Eating Dal Bhat (THE traditional Nepali Meal eaten by everyone before work each day) at Bimla’s house is a highlight of the morning at the office – a curious meal for Delan and Suzanne who are used to eating breakfast but perfect for people me who forgoes and is always hungry by 10 o’clock! (It’s a running joke that I always get seconds!).
