What's Bhaktapur Like? [04:23]
This video rewards several viewings: spot the shaver discreetly dropping his gunk at 0:53; the Nepalese James Bond wannabe at 1:58; the potter moving his eyes to the music at 2:08 (my favourite) and the ogler following a passing woman to the beat at 2:44. Bhaktapur is a UNESCO world heritage city in Nepal. This video is shot wandering along its streets one cold, misty morning. The mountains may have been in hiding, but the people weren't. Along the way, I encounter possibly the biggest smile I've ever seen; for the life of me, I can't understand why I stopped filming half way through it. The stuff UNESCO liked is towards the end of the video -- not that I want to keep you watching...

The two were part of a Dhaulagiri expedition just 10 months earlier so this was a great reunion. Earlier, we check out one of Thamel's seemingly millions of embroidery shops and place an order for the team's expedition shoulder patch. The shop owner has his work cut out for him as we need 3 days of work completed by tomorrow night! While Lhawang checks in with family and friends, Major, Ben and I head into the Kathmandu Valley to visit the city of Bhaktapur. Upon arriving at the city's gate, we meet a 16 year-old student named Kewan who makes it his mission to tell us anything and everything about this "City of Art and Architecture." This kid is amazing and not even a tiny bit camera shy. The city is in full preparations for Biska Jatra, it's largest festival. There's so much going on that Major and I split up, each armed with a camera, and take off in opposite directions. Kewan takes Major to an alter where they perform animal sacrifice while I photograph some of Bhaktapur's more colorful residents. Our visit is cut short as thousands of Nepali marchers descend on the Durbar Square to protest US president George Bush's declaration that Nepal is a country that harbors terrorists. We are absolutely engrossed watching this event unfold when Kewan grabs our arms and urges us to leave ...
