Artist's Description

This woman sold rice meals with potato curry and fish, and hot milky tea, from a shack near the lake in Pokhara, Nepal. For a few rupees, locals, and backpackers living on the cheap, could fill up with nutritious food. Squatting on public land by the road and cooking with scavenged firewood, this woman had a good business operation with her low-cost, popular eatery. Taken in 1980, with Nikon camera and lense and kodachrome slide film.
