K is for Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the capital and largest urban agglomerate of Nepal, consisting of Kathmandu Metropolitan City at its core, and several sister cities including Patan and Bhaktapur. We visited these three, each with their own Durbar Square, in 2000 and had a fascinating insight into a totally different culture – or cultures, with Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas existing side by side.

    Do you sometimes wonder about how the earthquake hit your favourite spots here?

      I do, and for some I don’t have to wonder. I’ve seen the pictures 😦 – terrible.
