As our tourist bus drove through the streets of Kathmandu, I found myself simply propping up my camera in the open window, and just continually pressing the button to take photos. There was just so much to take in and I knew my eyes alone wouldn’t be able to process everything we passed. I keep these photos as a pictorial diary of driving through Kathmandu.
Two friends venture down the street while shop vendors wait for buyers.
Shop keepers will cram as many goods as possible in their small storefronts, hoping to sell to passersby.
Backpacks and dresses and flowers and snacks and shoes and hair dye and pants.
Laundry hangs on a clothesline suspended between two houses.
Along the banks of the river you can see evidence of pollution in the city.
A store filled with fruits is ready to sell.
A mess of cables hangs above this shopping center.
Many shop owners wait a whole day to make a sale. I purchased a dress from a man who told me it was his only sale for the day. I felt bad for haggling…
The streets become busy with traffic. Looks like school’s out for the day.
Along the river again. Not much to keep you from accidentally going in!
