    Election Day!

    December 7, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Ok, today was a strange one. I didn’t know when I booked that today would be the second round of voting in the elections. A very important day for the Nepalis. As a result there was a ban on vehicles on all roads which made getting around much easier!

    I also took a walk to Durbar Square which is in front of the old royal palace of the now ceased Nepali kingdom.

    Seen many videos online about this pre-earthquake and its devastating to see how much was destroyed. I just can’t imagine the terror when it struck and looking around it’s easy to see how 9000 people died that day.

    Where ever you go you are constantly harassed to buy things or to give money, however much of this is genuine or not I don’t know but it’s constant and you can’t help feel for them.

    The government here has pledged to rebuild the country in 20 years, I hope it gets back to normal sooner.
