Kathmandu: Yin Yang Thai Restaurant

Kathmandu I am explaining to her the concept of chiaroscuro in painting. Employed by artists such as Caravaggio it features the subject of a painting lit by bright light contrasting against an otherwise dark background. She tells me you cannot know joy if you have not known sorrow.

Yin stays home on the farm, looking after the crops and animals and planning for their new home which will be designed as a self-sufficient refuge, totally off the grid. Yang is the only man she has loved and she never questions that they will be together through their senior years. Yang finds excuses to travel in the company of his young research assistant. When questioned he presents an explanation that has no connection to reality without ever feeling that he is lying. His infidelity is eventually exposed. During the separation agreement he argues over who will get the best frying pan.
