Caption: Date: 1965-1967 Location: Salyan, Salyan Description: Well dressed couple on the trail near Salyan. The man insisted that I take their picture. His wife objected and after a heated argument she finally consented, but unhappily so. While this picture was taken in a remote part of western Nepal this couple was likely quite wealthy and prominent. Notice the elaborate jewelry she is wearing and he has a badge on his suit lapel that features King Mahendra.
