Throwback Thursday: The entreprenettes.
In Nepal, everyone’s ingenious. They have to be. They don’t have much because they’re at the top of the world: Everything has to be trudged uphill to get there.
This tribe of girls (can’t be one over ten) were made responsible for babysitting their toddler sisters. But they didn’t let this drudgery interfere with their business model. As a matter of fact, they put childcare at the heart of the endeavor.
They parade themselves in their best clothes and jewelry, lugging around the toddlers and smiling big for the tourists’ cameras. Click.
They say “rupees” and they’ve got you. You hand over few. Then you know the real reason they’re smiling big.
