Photo of the day: Buddha eyes

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Buddha Eyes watch you everywhere in Nepal… there is no escaping the all-seeing Buddha.  This decorated doorway lives in Bhaktapur, Nepal, a charming World Heritage site that is everything Kathmandu (its neighbor) is not: calm, clean, quiet.  We followed dark paths through narrow doorways to hidden temples and fountains, watched laughing children playing in courtyards, bought freshly fried doughnuts, marveled at the intricate wood carvings wedged among the red brick buildings.  This was a good day.

    This sounds like the best detour off the main path. I love that door. 🙂
