He said he’s an art student, age 17, studying traditional Mandala at a school near by. He said that he wanted to practice English with me. We walked a bit together and he saw me different markets. He was kind. At one point he asked me if I wanted to go to see his school and that’s what I did. When we arrived there was a lady who pretended to be his teacher. They sold me three paintings for the price of $500. They said that by buying paintings from them I help the school and the art students, and that the kid called Akash will have discounted tuitions. In the end he asked me if I could buy for him some milk, rose and oil for his family that was poor and due to the earthquake they lost their house. We went together to a shop near the school, The guy at the shop asked me for Rs.4000 which is insane amount.
