Nepal and India smell- but India smells worse. All around there are plastic wrappers in the street. Animals, vechicals and people share the road as there is no pavement. Livestock can be seen all over the place with cows passing time on the main highways and goats 'grazing' on the tracks of a busy train station. The cows seem to forage in the rubbish for food.
Everything looks shoddy and dirty from the buildings to the cars and people with the exception of women. In these discusting streets women walk in beautiful sari's very contrasting with the setting. Traffic as you would expect is lawless but I was supprised how this fact was embraced by the drivers who did not seem to get angry at people cutting them up or parking in the middle of the road at all.
