Diaries of Nepal 13 // Dancing with the Lights

In Nepal there's about a hundred festivals throughout the year, but there's one festival called "Tihar". It's basically a festival of lights and children go from house to house to dance in exchange for money. (Kind of like the Nepali equivalent of Halloween and Christmas). Back in November I had the amazing opportunity of capturing some of my neighborhood friends do their thing. So much thought and pride is put into what they put out. They plan their performances and traditional dress for weeks in advance. Whatever money they earn as a group is split equally among them to use as extra pocket money.
