Working on the rice paddy [02:18]
On our way from Pokhara in western Nepal to Chitwan National Park in southern Nepal, we stopped at a rice farm and lent a helping hand. We joined a group of women who were pulling rice stalks to later be replanted in a rice paddy. We didn't know the first thing about growing rice, but we gave it our best shot.

Bundyo Jatra/Raato machhindranath jatra [09:23]
April-May; Hindu month of Vaisakha The chariot procession known as Rato (Red) Machhendranath is the biggest event in Patan, Nepal. The festival honors Machhendranath, the god of rain and plenty, who is worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists in different incarnations, and has shrines at both Patan and in the village of Bungamati, a few miles south of Patan. The festival, held when the monsoon season is approaching, is a plea for plentiful rain. The image of the god, a carved piece of red-painted wood, is taken from the shrine in the Pulchowk area at the start of the festivities and paraded around the city in several stages on a wheeled chariot. The chariot is a huge wooden wagon that is towed by hundreds of devotees. Finally, after a month of being hauled about, the chariot is dismantled, and the image is conveyed to Bungamati to spend six months at the temple there. A similar but shorter festival, the Sweta (or White) Machhendranath, is held in Kathmandu in March or April. The image of the god is taken from the temple at Kel Tole, placed on a chariot and pulled from one historic location to another. When it arrives in the south of the city, the chariot is taken apart, and the image is returned to its starting place.------Nepal Tourism Board
