Good morning Kathmandu
It’s cloudy these days, sometimes it rains. The weather is so cool, very comfortable. It’s 5:40am here. Sitting on the roof of the hotel, I can hear various of sounds of Kathmandu morning.
In the very beginning, it was the singing of birds. Chinese says, the birds who get up early get worms to eat. That could be the reason:). Then it’s the bark of the dogs. There are so many dogs in the city. Most of them have home, some don’t, which are wondering and searching for food all over the city. Generally they are not aggressive.
The horn and sound of engines of the vehicles started. In Kathmandu, there are uncountable motorbikes, just like bikes for Chinese in 90s even till now. The cars are mostly very old, covered with dust and mud. Either motorbikes or cars like to horn for time to time, for it’s too crowded in the city. Nepalis, normally so unhurried, become impatient mantics behind the wheels. It recalls me the memory of drivers in Shanghai who like to horn a lot too, but can not be compared with here.
There is a school next to the hotel. Students come to school at 9:00am Nepal time. It will be much noiser after that. Enjoying the peaceful moment is one of the must-do in the early morning.
