To holmertz: Boudhanath vs Swayambhunath

Thank you Gert,

No, it's not possible that you haven't been to the Boudhanath Stupa.
Perhaps the site wasn't as touristy in the 1970s and there weren't that many shops or restaurants around the...

Thank you Brenda,

I'm afraid I will disappoint you but I didn't stay that long to see what they did with the pots.

Thank you Jean,

I'm terribly sorry but I don't remember what the function of the building in the foreground was.
