Noisy, crawling and animated, Kathmandu never seems to sleep that long. Through the maze of its winding streets there is a daily show, representing this city's every contradictions: modern and traditional, urban and rural at the same time. Street shops and butcher stalls from another time, to the brisk spice or vegetable markets of the town's center, while passing by the Thamel bars, travel through a town of paradoxes.
