This picture is shot from our family room and shows both the best and worst of Nepal. The temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (with a temporary shed for renovating another temple in front of it). The boys, who have been living there for the last two weeks, have glue in their bags which the boy with the white hat just huffed (breathed deeply from the bag) to get high on.

The boys, who do not appear to be teenagers yet, have not bothered us at all but, of course,poor kids on drugs are not a good thing and can be dangerous. I could have them ousted by saying something to the police, but I am trying to find an organization in town that actually helps them.
