An older woman sitting on the side of the road in Panauti had her hair in braids. The braid is an ancient and universal hairstyle. I've met a girl with braids in India, and I've seen another girl with braids in Mexico as well. The image of braids is that they are for women, but the pigtails that were common in China in the past were braids for men. Both men and women have been wearing braids.
That said, an older woman with a thick old braid was working on the side of the road. I could see a thick string in her hand, but I couldn't tell what she was making or what she was doing. The older woman was just working in silence. I thought she didn't care about the camera, but when I pointed it at her, she was smiling. The older woman was cute.
