2012-01 Missing photos

I promised photos yesterday but didn’t deliver because of an arbitrary problem with the internet. further serious issues with the internet – not sure what’s going on – but here are a few of the shots from this week in any case….

A white face is such a rarity here in Janakpur – I’m constantly followed by gangs of local kids
Mists in Janakpur

Long distance Rickshaw - Mahotari
Rickshaw cyclists travel for miles out to the sticks – one of the only forms of transport alongside oxcart and infrequent public buses
Buffalo Janakpur
One of the most prized possesions of the Janakpur family. They’re not cheap – weighing in at around £500 – which in Local terms is an absolute fortune.
