I always believed that if you really want to experience a new country, you must do a road trip. So, during my recent trip to Nepal, I wasn’t going to miss the chance to hit the road.
Oblivious to the traffic and against the best advice of my friend Sachin, I decided to find somebody to drive me from Kathmandu to Chitwan (some 150 km). In my mind, this distance wasn’t supposed to keep us on the road for more than maximum 4 hours. I was proven wrong. The horrible traffic and road conditions stretched the time needed to more than 6 hours.
As I managed to get over the shock of getting out of Kathmandu, mainly cause by the desire of getting to my destination alive seeing all the trucks and busses speeding through the sharp turns and madly overtaking one another, I pointed my camera out the window at the side of the road in an attempt to capture something more.
This is a small selection of images taken from the car on the way to Chitwan.
Wearing different clothes and preaching different words doesn’t change the money-making, manipulative, evil and mischievous institution that every organized religion is!
A holy men day!
