Four Women Around A Well

Women hauling water

Every well in the city was crowded

Shot in the old town of Bhaktapur, Nepal.

I found a well when I rambled along the alleyways in the old quarter. Like other well, a higher number of buckets were put around it. And four women were standing. One of them was just collecting water while she was moving the lever up and down.

Because of the shortage of water, every wells in the city were crowded with the locals who was seeking water. The shortage was not completely unrelated to the tourists. I couldn't take a shower everyday during staying.
