Day 72 - May 19 - Kathmandu Local tour with Dad

My father will stay with me for couple of days. And we went out for a local tour of kathmandu in a Car. Ofcourse not on my bike :)

Kathmandu streets...





This is called Tempo and it runs on electricity it seems. Most of them are driven by ladies!! T


We went to Pashupathi Nath temple first but photography was not allowed. Found the temple strange with the temple in Chinese style and dragons all around.

Then to Boudhanath...


Up close...


Us there...





Local handi craft...





Kids having fun at a huge prayer wheel...


Good kids pose when i say...


The busy street outside...


One of the rare empty street...


Lot of tempos...


At Patan Darbar square...





That is real buffalo intestine btw!! Even now during navaratri, sacrifices are made here...




















Lot of water problem in Kathmandu and some anciant aquaducts still serving the purpose...








Then we head to Kathmandu Darbar square...





This one is full of activity... People having their evening hangout... traffic zigzaging in between...








In the interest of NonVeggies - Curtosy a Veggy!


These unfinished building are common, prolly they save cost of concrete and paint for the outside of buildings...


At Swayambhunath...








Bird's eye view of Kathmandu city... No high rise at all...





Prayer flags...


Bhuddist musicle instruments.
