This page has pictures of people in Nepal and their activities.

I was in Nepal during the fifteen-day festival called Dashain. There were signs of this festival everywhere. One part of the festival traditions are the large swings constructed from bamboo poles.

Religious worship is apparent everywhere. You can often seen people who stop at a shrine or temple and pray. Hindu temples are everywhere.

I saw a couple of dance performances of local dances.

The rice harvest was in full swing during my time there. All the processing of the harvest is done on the streets in the towns and villages.

As is usual in India, most of the shopping is done in small local stores and on the streets.
