Everyday life in Old Katmandu

I visited Nepal at the end of my trip through Bhutan in 2015. I flew home from Katmandu the day before the destructive earthquake of that year. It is always difficult to write my blog on the last day of any travels and I only noticed this ommission last weekend when chatting to a pal about his forthcoming trip to Katmandu. I couldn’t find any reference to Nepal on my website (markchesterton.com). In order to rectify this, I am going to post images and titles on a couple of blogs.

This first collection shows the hustle in the tangle, the chaos of narrow streets of Old Katmandu that gulp locals and visitors alike, down into the dark stomach of the old town.
