While walking through a Nepali village in Kathmandu valley, this lovely woman invited me into her home for a cup of tea after smiling in bemusement from my fractured attempt to practice the local language. We communicated using mostly gestures and smiles. As I was holding her daughter's newborn baby, I realized people are the same everywhere in developing world. They value family, faith, hospitality, and new friends. This was a beautiful day.

Location: Bhaktapur, Nepal
