Katmandu, Nepal, 1976

Todo esto ya no lo volveremos a ver...
 ·  Translate
 
Katmandu was an intensely ornate city that is easily damaged. The carvings, details, public spaces were glorious. My heart goes out to its citizens who suffer with their city. As you can see from these images I took in 1976, the medieval town has been delicate for decades. Loosely stacked bricks are everywhere. One can also see what splendid art has been lost. Not all has been destroyed, and I am sure the Nepalis will rebuild as they have in the past. Still, the earthquake shook more than just buildings. 

If you look carefully you may notice something unusual about these photos. They show no cars, pedicabs, or even bicycles. At the time I took these images, Katmandu was an entirely pedestrian city. Everyone walked everywhere. Part of why I loved it. That has not been true for decades, so this is something else that was lost long ago. Also missing back then was signage. There are few signs for stores, or the typical wordage you would see in any urban landscape today. Katmandu today is much more modern, much more livable, or at least it was. 

Blessings on you, Katmandu!

¿Es Mrs.Varoufakis la misteriosa protagonista del Common People de Pulp? Aquí dicen que sí (ironías de la vida...):
One of pop culture's enduring mysteries may have just been solved. Greek paper the Athens Voice has revealed that the wife of Yanis Varoufakis, the Greek Finance minister, could be the rich art student Jarvis Cocker wrote about in Pulp's single 'Common People'.

Efectos colaterales de tipos de interés tan bajos
