"Double Dorje" restaurant in Bodnath..electricity was off at that moment..

three hours power cut in Nepal every day since December..
fuel was a problem when i was there too, i saw long queues
every day because of the conflict in Terrai region.

the Tibetan lady on the right you see here, is running this
"one room" eatery place with her family for last 22 years..
dark deep eyes, a great smile..she never had a chance to see
Dalai Lama once in her life and i said that i had the "privilege",
she just sighed..

then she talked about her little lovely white dog who died a couple
of years ago because of some 'stomach' problem. was a bit upset..
its funny how the conversation goes sometimes between strangers..

was great home cooking, modest but delicious tibetan food
(just like the "tibetan" way, down to earth i would say)
some vegetable momos, and a big fat tongba for a polish
(hot millet beer). ;)
