On a dashboard…
‘All conditioned things are impermanent’ — when one sees this with wisdom, one turns away from suffering.” The Buddha.
I took the road from Birgunj, to Katmandu, Nepal, as expected the scenery was just spectacular but the roads treacherous. Parts of the journey were just mud roads, imagine what it would be during the rainy season. Thank God it was a beautiful sunny day. The driver was really amazing, driving through these narrow dangerous roads with steep cliffs takes tremendous skill and technic to navigate through these mountains… hats off to these drivers!
Well, taking photos was another challenge. These testy bends will take several trips up and down this path to a master the art of taking pictures in the Himalayan mountain range, Although I was able to take some video footage with my half charged iPhone, I really regret not having a full charge. Where as a dslr, I had to just give-up taking pictures. Maybe on my way back I’ll equip myself a monopod to rest my camera and hopefully share with you the spectacular views.
At one of the stops alone the way I took some pictures, and there was this little figurine of Buddha wrapped with prayer beads and some rupees rolled up like a cigarette stuck into the beads that drew my attention… So here it is!
