American Groovy

Early on in 2005, when I was traveling through Northern India with Stubbs, I unexpectedly found a photograph of myself in a Nepali newspaper in Darjeeling. I can not read Nepali, and, as the article came out when I was leaving the region, I was unable to find out what it said.

“This the way to pierce your ears….an american groovy”

Thanks to the anonymous Nepal traveler.
