Nepal: Travel in the time of the Corona is written by Jacob Gowland Jørgensen

Kathmandu - the beginning of the adventure

"The heart's memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good."
Gabriel García Márquez: Love in the Age of Cholera.

I go and go. Left around. Left, left. I'm not alone, there are many other friendly people around. These are people from the mountains. They are tanned with round heads. From the Himalayas.

I walk around the Buddhist shrine Boudhanath Stupa in the “Little Tibet” area in the middle of Kathmandu. There is a calm and almost loving atmosphere here, where the prayer flags flutter in the wind.

Here are people whose roots come from all over the region, from Tibet and Nepal, to Bhutan and northern mountainous India. They have found a common meeting place in Nepal's capital Kathmandu, which is a tolerant, open and safe city where there is room for many, but quite a few funds. Here in Kathmandu, my journey begins in the time of the corona.
