Parallel Histories No3. Two women of current history

Nepali woman in Plumstead

London, Plumstead. The older woman is originally from Nepal, could be easier the wife of a Gurkha – soldiers from Nepal who were fighting for the British army. Many Nepali people live in Plumstead, and most of their restaurants and small businesses here have a reference to Gurkha’s. The younger woman (on the bus) is an actress, I believe an American actress.
