Travels in Nepal # 59 Village life in Nepal
Instead of dismounting from the elephant at the National Park headquarters our guide continued the ride along the roads through the nearby farming land and then through the streets of the village near our hotel. This gave us an excellent view, from an elevated platform of village life in this part of Nepal.
I was amazed at the pride taken by the farmers in their humble dwellings and the courtyard by their houses. We saw several of them sweeping the yard clean. There were animals everywhere, but not much seemed to be growing in the gardens or fields except for corn. It was the dry season when we visited so that would account for it.
