Kathmandu(/ˌkɑːtmɑːnˈduː/; Nepali pronunciation: [kɑʈʰmɑɳɖu]) is the capital and largest municipality of Nepal. It also hosts the headquarters of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC). It is the only city of Nepal with the administrative status of Mahanagar (Metropolitan City), as compared to Upa-Mahanagar (Sub-Metropolitan City) or Nagar (City).
Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards spread across the lower slopes of the mountain and the broad Plain of Catania to the south.
So back again. I get off the bus, where I spent the last 10 hours.
"Hadžur!" is heard over my head. I just raise my hands to catch my backpack, sent from the roof of the bus.
I watch the street. It not so much changed. Dirt and dust are everywhere, people sitting in front of their homes, dealing with ordinary activities such as picking lice from the head of a family member, a scratching nose or taking lenses on todays dhalbat.
