Dunnies downunder – post 2

As promised here’s another outback loo in Australia.

This one was designed by a friend at Kenilworth in the Sunshine Coast hinterland of Queensland. I can personally recount there were views – passing livestock that nosied by, the odd spider and snake, the sawdust at the bottom of the pit and the meandering Mary River just nearby… memorable.

Outback dunnies downunder

I’ve just been commissioned to do a piece on Australia’s outback dunnies–yeah it’s a great job–and came up with this photo from the archives.

It’s the leaning dunny of Silverton, with an occupant that has done as the sign requests and dropped in.

Silverton, New South Wales, Australia

I’ll post a few more photos in coming days.

Photo of the day: The chicken porters of Nepal

I got talking to one of the porters on the Annapurna Sanctuary trek last month and discovered he was carrying a load of live chickens – 35 to be exact.

These were probably being taken up in time for Nepal New Year but might also just have been the regular supply to hotels along the route.

Photo of the day: New born kid on Easter Sunday

As per the last few posts, I am profiling a few photos from galleries of Nepal that will be uploaded shortly (promise).

This sight (unfortunately slightly blurry) greeted us on our trek down to the hot springs below Jhinu Danda on the Annapurna Sanctuary hike. Remarkably it was Easter Sunday and seemed a perfect symbol of the new life represented on this holiday.

The kid had just been born and the mother was licking it clean with the after birth still being delivered. It was gorgeous, even right there in the mud. Rain was pouring down around us and obviously the goat hadn’t had time to find a quiet spot to give birth and had got down to business right in the middle of the trail with other trekkers coming past.

We watched for awhile, got as close as we dared and then went down to the springs. When we returned about 1-2 hours later there was no sign of the kid or its mum. So it must have somehow found its legs and managed to walk off with its mum.

Photo of the day: Woman with chicken near Chiule

This woman was walking along the track between Chiule and Chomrong (near Annapurna Sanctuary) with chickens in tow. You couldn’t help but think the journey probably wouldn’t end well for the fowl!

As per my previous post this is a snippet of the photos soon to be uploaded from my recent trip to Nepal. Stay tuned for more.
