Dashain is the festival of abandoning Kathmandu to visit family back home. Wherever home is, this basically meant that I was walking around in a place that looked like a zombie movie.

Dashain is the longest holiday in the Nepali Calendar. I suspect this calendar has some causal effect on the rather flexible view people in Nepal take to time. Another interesting fact is that Nepal has more festival/holidays than anywhere else. The net result of this is that in several months I have never been witness…
