Peerless Nepal, A Naturalist's Paradise: Signed and Numbered

Volkmar Wentzel

“Instead of cars carrying workers, Nepal has workers carrying cars on the rocky, hilly trail from Kathmandu. Here, automobiles, stripped of wheels and bumpers, are shoulder-borne to and from the capital, the only Nepalese city with modern roads. This old German-made Mercedes is going to India as a trade-in on a shiny American model. Some 60 {men}, moving to the rhythm of a chant, balance it on long poles.”
