A torrential rainstorm with angry winds woke us this morning. It appeared to be a day to hide under the covers.
But the rain soon stopped and revealed a Kathmandu that is not always seen. Both the Bagmati River and the smaller Dhoki Khola were full and rushing. I longed for a boat to launch into the waves.
Arriving at King’s College, I joined others up to the roof to look at the surrounding snow-capped hills. A friend, Arjun, said that he had never in his life seen it so clear.
Of course, the phone camera fails to show what it really looked like, but with a little imagination you can see the Chandragiri Hills to the southwest and the snow on top.
Lovely posting, Chip. The air looked so clean it actually made me take a deep breath. Must have cleaned the streets, too. Here we have a light cover of snow, dead quiet except for the occasional snowplow passing by. I love this season here.
