The Turmeric Girl


I often return to this moment. To the girl selling tumeric on a street of Bhaktapur. I only took these two photos. I wish I had taken more. As I walked away from her I kept looking back. I remember telling Zé and Filipa to notice the girl, the tumeric and the gray tones that surrounded her. There was harmony between the cool and warm colors.

I am talking about this beautiful girl I saw in a street of Nepal in 1999 because I add turmeric to almost everything I cook. Turmeric (cúrcuma longa) seems to be a great anti-cancer spice.
