Letters from Kathmandu #12: Trucks and Buses

Dear family and friends,

One way to handle intimidating things is to find something about them you like.  So here are 35 photos of trucks and buses.  Nepalis decorate their big vehicles; they’re as colorful as they are loud.  A surprising number fly American, British, or Jamaican colors – Bob Marley’s image is everywhere.  But one wonders, too, if like the Beatles borrowed the sitar sound from South Asia, American and British 60’s culture borrowed the “magic bus.”

Hope everybody’s well,
