Bonus movie from our journey – border closing ceremony at Attari-Wagah near Amritsar.
We landed in Nepal at the wrong time, in the hot pre-election period. On November 19, 2013 the elections to the Constituent Assembly- the second after the overthrowing the monarchy – took place. It was a difficult time for the Nepalese. Country plunged into political chaos. Election campaigns were accompanied by loud street demonstrations and protests. On November 11th began the so-called Bandh (in Nepali “closed”) – the general strike. Elections were boycotted by Maoist Communist Party, they called for nine-day transport strike. At that time, the traffic situation in Nepal has been severely compromised. Schools were closed and some workplaces. Riots began.
