I'm wondering what she's picking up. :)
Still being useful and living life is to be commended.

I hope in their simplicity they can find a happy life, even having to work hard all the way through... I mean, working hard is a good thing but advanced age should have its share of rest...
God bless you!

You have been to such amazing places. Great photos!

Dina said...

Your title drew me to this (since that is what I feel like this week, trying to get the house clean and crumbless for Passover).
Long live the working old ladies!

Look at the size of those leaves behind her!
Is that dung in the basket?

JM said...

Yes, Dina,it's dung! They use it instead of coal.

Regina said...

Simple living and I think they are happy with what they are doing.
Nepal is a wonderful place.
Great shots!

And sometimes women are called the "weaker" sex! Hah! In so many places around the world it's the women who carry the burdens of hard labor!

Imagine working this hard at this age...

Nice shots! I love the colours - green and red work well together.
