Today it was market day and we took a selection of the photos I made in Necha last year to present to the people who are in the pictures.  We were stopped many times on the way and invited to eat some fruit or potatoes or to drink some curd. The market was full of people.  Some recognized me and greeted me. Others stared at me strangely or started laughing really loudly. After traveling for a few years in Asia I have become used to these reactions to me and handle them much more easily now than I did to begin with. 

 At the market day I gave a lot of prints of the photos I took one year ago to the people.

We got in contact with few of the teachers in Necha. We briefly discussed the creation of Micro-Care Nepal Foundation and explained our projects to them. As expected they were very positive and invited us to visit their school later. In the middle of the picture above you can see one of the teachers from the poorest school in Necha. We made a visit to his family on the first day after visiting the market. 

 In the fields the women were working hard harvesting corn and planting rice…But as always they found time for a picture.
