Wallked, with shorts, an ipod and a bottle of water, from home to office. A distance I covered in 60 minutes. There wasn’t the usual cacophony of traffic, the smoke the vehicles bellow, and the dust the road throws at you. I walked smiling, breathing heartily and
enjoying the environment that Kathmndu should have had. It’s Kathmandu Shutdown...At the main junction at Balkhu, a crowd... were making sure nothing passed through, except ambulances and press
vehicles. Their job was easy.
There weren’t any vehicles on the road at all. They’d all been frightened off. Towards the end of the walk, my knees buckled, slightly. It’d been almost an hour since I’d started walking, and tackling the uphill climb just before I arrived at my office, I was drained. Still, the old athlete in me kicked in and I arrived in my office in one piece. Now, I’ve got to relax, get the strength back in my old legs and walk home. I’m thinking of listening to some disco music on the way back. Helps.— kathmandublogger.blogspot.com
