A Nepalese Market #travel

The Thamel area of Kathmandu, the main city in Nepal, is a shopper’s paradise. There are so many interesting things to look at and food to try. It’s a feast for the senses and a real treat for a photographer.

We purchased a Gurkha knife, much like one of the selection in the photo. A Gurkha knife or a kukri has a curved blade and is used as both a handy implement and a weapon in Nepal. A Swiss Army Knife for the Nepalese people! The Nepalese army soldiers use a kukri as part of their weapon arsenal.
