Having shared a few posts already, I have yet to explain where I’m staying. Right in the heart of the city near Thamil, we are 26 teachers sharing 5 rooms and a handful of bathrooms in bunk beds. My bed was the top bunk with a low ceiling but I have since moved to the floor with the ants and cockroaches!
Crossing the road is an event in itself in that the traffic will not stop. We literally step out while trying to dodge the cars and mopeds. Accidents are minimal and it somehow works as a system. There are traffic wardens at busy times who stand in the middle of the road and blow whistles at vehicles to control them.
There are some cool sights like the Garden of Dreams, the Monkey Temple and Durbar Square.
It’s a fascinating city despite the dust and grime but for right now, it’s home.
