Thamel- Kathmandu, Nepal

Drifting high above this dirty ole town, not a single car is moving down the road. Floating down everyones afoot. National elections are today and the Maoist have instilled a Banda, a strike, or more rightly a lock down of commerce. Scared young lads, in ill fitting helmets and old carbines scan the alleys for anything out of the ordinary. We roll in to Thamel. After an hour, walking about, taking it all in, a quiet calm sets in. I really missed this place.
