Getting lost in Thamel District

NEPAL | Friday, 29 August 2014 | Views [237]

The chaos and close humanity that is the Thamel district of Kathmandu. The people are really nice and it's easy to strike up an interesting conversation.Tiny roads and lanes and traffic of every size and kind tooting and pushing through. This time I am able to negotiate this fairly naturally. You have to get used to being inches from the cars as you all share the same space. I always get lost and have to say no to cab and rickshaw drivers who want to give me a ride. This time I ended up in a map shop where I got a detailed map and good directions. The first pic is our hotel Samsara. The last pic is a tiny puja at a corner just near my hotel. When I see this I know where I am.

I will post the photos later
