A Trip To Kopan
Kopan is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery next to the forest and on the outskirts of Kathmandu. It sits on top of a hill and has beautiful statues inside, as well as stunning views of the capital city. I thought it would be great to make a little road trip there with some items from our Autumn collection so we could have a look around and run about in lots of beautiful jewelry.
On the way we found a bamboo thicket and had to have an explore.

We also ran into some chickens running about on the path, so of course we couldn't resit playing with them, all efforts for a model shot of course failed though...
After that, we went on up the hill to the monastery and luckily, we were allowed inside. I was amazed by how beautiful it was- both the buildings and the view, and it was obvious to see why many tourists and locals flock here every Saturday.

After we left the monastery we explored the countryside outside and I couldn't resist twirling around in one of the silk dresses made from recycled sari fabric we'd just finished sewing.

Pema also found a beautiful view of the valley and you can see how the city of Kathmandu peters out before the forest begins.

Before long the sun started to set, as it does pretty early in Nepal. The power lines looked rather beautiful in the sunset though and we got one last shot of Pema wearing some of our handmade brass earrings.
