Before Social Distancing Came To Kathmandu – Photo Of The Day

Description: It all seems so normal, months ago in Kathmandu. While the image is from 2011, it is a daily occurrence in the shopping districts around Kathmandu.

But now my contacts in Kathmandu tell me of curfews and permits needed to be out on a scooter. Empty streets and just the barest of necessities open.

Nepal will come back. After all, they had been making tremendous headway since the devastating earthquakes in 2015 that level buildings and buried a couple of villages in the hills.

But it won’t be easy, as is the case almost everywhere.

As much as I don’t like crowds, I look forward to seeing the busy streets of Kathmandu in 2021. Care to join me in the chaos (as long as it is safe to do so)?
