Traditional fishing in Nepal - I don't usually like fish but it's one of my favourite Nepali dishes because they make them so well!

Yay! Finally got all my #zerowaste essentials. Now slowly trying to flush out all the plastic in our home and replace everything with more #environmentallyfriendly options like wood, bamboo, or metal. Being a biologist and environmentalist I couldn't ignore the huge social issue we have with our garbage and plastic and the huge impact it has on wildlife. So I made the decision that just #recycling and #composting are not enough. Off course this means buying less packaged goods and more bulk stuff (like the great shampoo and soap shown here!) but also being more conscious about what you buy: if you have to buy things in plastic (like me, being gluten free means finding other options can be hard) then try and buy bigger quantities, buying one big container of yogurt is less material than 20 individual packaged little ones. It's also choosing things packaged in glass or metal containers (easier recycled), and taking my own bags and buying loose produce. There are so many alternatives to mainstream products, and easy to access now with online shopping. All these are small choices that can make a huge difference. It also means I'm being healthier cause I can't buy all that #junkfood and I have actually been saving money as I'm investing in products that have a longer life than plastic. It's easy and I think everyone should start to be more conscious of what they are buying and the impact it has! .

A group of #buddhist nuns take a break before afternoon prayers during a week long fast. I was so touched and inspired during my stay at the monastery!

How could I go so long without posting a photo of an actual vulture?? Fear not, here it is. Two female red-headed vultures fight at a vulture restaurant. These "restaurants" provide critically endangered birds with safe food (not containing drugs or poisons) and are run by the local community.

A traditional Tharu Nepali wedding. The Tharu people are an ethnic group or 'caste' living in the terai region. There are many castes in Nepal and each has there own traditions. However most of the marriages in Nepal are still arranged, with the couple meeting maybe once or not at all before the wedding. It is tradition for the woman to go and live with the husbands family, so the ceremony is held at the brides house and afterwards she and all her belongings are put on a bus and she leaves her home for good. All her relatives give her gifts and well wishes and say goodbye.
