Photo By @vikaskumarvikas खेतों के बीच। पेड़ों की छाँव में। एक कुर्सी। एक आईना जो एक तना के सहारे टिकाया गया है। एक कैंची और हजामत बनाने के कुछ समान। ओपन एयर थिएटर की तर्ज पर यह है ओपन एयर सैलून। सस्ता और आरामदायक। We all know about open air theatre so i think you should also know about open air hair saloon. I clicked this image near my village in Bihar. #saloon #hairsaloon #life #lifeinvillage #rurallife #bihar #india #myvillage #Everydayindia

From @jonparkerphoto – Bhutan; a dancer performs during the Paro Tshechu festival. Certainly the most unique religious festival I have attended. Tshechu are annual religious Bhutanese festivals held in each district or dzongkhagof Bhutan on the tenth day of a month of thelunar Tibetan calendar. The month depends on the place. Tshechus are religious festivalsof the Drukpa Lineage of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. Tshechus are large social gatherings, which perform the function of social bonding among people of remote and spread-out villages. Large markets also congregate at the fair locations, leading to brisk commerce. The Thimphu tshechu and thaParo tshechu are among the biggest of the tshechus in terms of participation and audience. #bhutan #bhutanese #paro #tshechu #buddhism #buddhist #travel #traveling #1000Likes #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #photooftheday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel

From @ennaperezge – A 8000 metros de altitud hay tres veces menos oxígeno que a nivel del mar. Lo que significa que se necesita toda la voluntad para continuar respirando. Todo el cuerpo se concentra en esta única meta: la siguiente inspiración. Y sólo después de algunos minutos , cuando la respiración se ha regularizado, comienza uno a vivir de nuevo. ——————————- A 8000 meters there are three times less oxygen than at sea level. Which means that all the will to continue breathing is needed. The whole body is concentrated in this single goal: the next inspiration. And only after a few minutes when breathing has regularized, one begins to live again. #nepal #everest #travel #traveling #mteverest #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #photooftheday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel
