Downtown Kathmandu on a Sunday afternoon is impossible. It's choked with people, vendors, bicycles, motorcycles, cars, and every form of transportation. There is a Hindu shrine at almost every corner and vendors are there to sell flowers for 'puja'. I had a guy who offered to take me around but he said, 'not today' because he knew its almost impossible. It was a pity, I tried as best as I could considering the little time I had. It would have been nice to stroll and have all the sights pointed out and explained to me.
