As I strolled the streets of Kathmandu, basking in the bustling energy of the city, I noticed a young girl in the distance watching me with a shy curiosity. As I walked closer, I was immediately taken by the most captivating eyes I've ever seen. Her face was mostly expressionless, but her eyes reflected an oceanic depth of feeling and experience that belied her age.

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
