SarangKot Sunrise Shopping Center, Kaski District, Nepal.
There's something about shopping at altitude that fills my head with whimsy.
Alright, maybe not, but my girlfriend thought it was fun. Before the sun decided to cooperate on our early morning expedition to SarangKot, we rubbed shoulders with crafty locals selling their wares to the Sunrise Crew. A bright idea, if you ask me; the hawkers have a captive audience up on that mountain, and when the clouds decide to spoil the party (and the views of the Himalayas) you know someone is bound to buy something. Thankfully, we made it through the ad hoc shop without being accosted on an aggressive level. Otherwise I may have wound up spending five paychecks on Nepali blankets (I just can't say no to yak wool).
