Crowds in Kathmandu

Today we had an interesting experience. When you walk on the sidewalk of Kathmandu, it feels like a nice walk. It smells like a nice day with flowers and trees. When you decide to cross the street, things get different. When you cross the street, cars won’t stop for you. You have to time it right or you will get run over. When you cross the street it feels like trying to avoid your parents when going to the kitchen for a snack. It smells like fear of being run over by a crazy motorcycle.  Crossing the street in Kathmandu tastes like throw-up because that’s what you will probably do. When you get into the little ally it is like playing a game of Russian Roulette. It is all about luck. It feels like you are running into people to run away from a car. It tastes like fear and worry. It smells like all the garbage around you. It is also like playing a game of wipeout.
