    Hi Walker59, glad I inspired you to dig out more old pics, hopefully we'll inspire others to do the same.

    Aloha Metalfreek, so enjoyed your photos of the old days. To see old photos of Bodhnath when it was just fields like when I first came to KTM in the early 70's was great. In those days Bodhnath as well as the little community at the top of the Swayambhunath were full of Tibetan refugees unlike the crowded streets around Bodnath today which are now all buildings where fields used to be. The Tibetan refugees crowding the top of Swayambhunath in their traditional dress are now a memory of the past as the shops that served food and chai are long gone. Have you ever wandered KTM wishing there wasn't such horrendous traffic? That was the way it was in the 70's. One could walk the streets and watch the children play, and the air quality was so much cleaner. Still smelly with all the pooping in the streets. The only good thing about modern Nepal. Personal hygiene and health of it's people got much better thanks to World health organizations. Thanks for the memories as I never took pics back in those hippie days of KTM. Happy trails
