I was at St. Lawrence Market today looking for my daily shot, I wans't having a lot of luck, but some brightly coloured sunlit scarfs caught my eye through a window on the lower level.

I walked in and took a few shots and I made a comment about the beautiful colours to the lady behind the counter. I asked if I could take her photo and introduced myself and she told me a little about herself. She was born in Nepal and has been in Canada about 11 years. She imports hand made arts and clothing from Nepal and Tibet. She told me a little about the history of her homeland. Her parents were from Tibet, but moved to Nepal when it was claimed by China.

Kunsang is #83 in my 100 strangers project.
