The forgotten pyramids of Sudan

Bagrawiyah, Sudan – More than 200km from the Sudanese capital Khartoum, the remains of an ancient city rise from the arid and inhospitable terrain like a science-fiction film set. Nestled between sand dunes, the secluded pyramids seem to have been forgotten by the modern world, with no nearby restaurants or hotels to cater to tourists.

Nepal landscapes

A complete edited series of images from my Nepal trip is in the works and will soon be up via few themed releases.
Meanwhile going through all the images , I keep discovering landscapes of the beautiful places I was lucky enough to have my memories enriched with.

On the road in Nepal – Road trip to Pokhara

After I spent just over a day in beautiful Chitwan, searching for people I got a history lesson from, I set off for another 150 km and too manny hours drive to Pokhara. With some godly protection carefully glued to the dashboard of the car, I ventured into a completely new landscape and the Himalayas started to take shape as the road was winding and curving.

The crazy truck drivers, seemingly omnipresent on Nepal’s roads, made me question if the holy figurine on the plastic dashboard of the new car, the driver was proudly steering along the curved two lanes road ,was having a real effect on our well being.

Already proud of my achievement – didn’t scream once during the manny hours of extreme adventure sitting on the passenger seat while on the highways of Nepal – I kicked my camera into gear and captured as much as I could from the life on the side of the road. (between breaks when car sickness symptoms were slightly overwhelming).

Before I knew it, the Himalayan landscape took over my senses. Another dream was just unfolding in front of my eyes and after years of trying to see these mountains, I was staring at the Annapurna range of the Himalayas with the Annapurna II peak (7937m) in the center of this majestic view.

Wearing different clothes and preaching different words doesn’t change the money-making, manipulative, evil and mischievous institution that every organized religion is!
