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...
