I arrived in Kathmandu on Friday, at noon. I had been to Nepal 7 years ago, so I was interested to see the changes. It has not changed much. As we took a taxi to Pilgrim’s Guest House where I would be staying, I noticed that the roads were still bad, still had dusty trash along the sides, and the traffic was a confusing mess of cars, taxis, bicycle rickshaws, motorcycles, people, a few cows, peppered with honking horns. Intersections had traffic controllers gesturing who could go next, but there were often long waits, as very few streets crossed at right angles. There were also no lane indications, or if there were no one paid attention to them, and would try to pull ahead to pass at the first opportunity.
