Durbar Square is where the ruling king had his residence and court. In the Kathmandu Valley there are three, one in Kathmandu, one in Patan, and one in Bhaktipur. See more photos of Kathmandu's Durbur Square here.

Shouldering the white man's burden. Leaving Nepal, on the way to the airport we had to get out and walk two miles to the terminal because a demonstration had closed off the street. The taxi driver, without asking us (because he didn't know any English and -- Surprise! -- we didn't know Nepalese), hired three apparently jobless men as our porters. (I kept trying to tell them that the bags had wheels.)
