Rains in Kathmandu.

What city do you live in? What neighborhood?
What are some adjectives that describe your neighborhood?
How long have you lived there, and what brought you there?
What is your favorite thing about this place? Your least favorite?
I love the way of life
I do not like taxi drivers :)
Do you feel that you belong there?
What is the most common misconception about where you live?
impossible to live in Kathmandu
What is a special fact about your city that you have to live there to know?
What aspect of your city do you secretly love?
Bouddhanath Stupa and dogs around
Anything else you'd like to add?
It rains in a curious way in Kathmandu: it starts all of a sudden
and it pours heavily as though someone turns on "To flood the city knee high" switch ...
All plans for the day have to be postponed to "some other time"
(which explains the pace of the Nepalese working),
and it is clear there is nothing so important as this moment
when all you can do is to marvel at wet ravens in the bushes of blooming roses...
I go to a roof and watch the disappearing still colourful city...
