Kathmandu, Nepal

The population is over 1 million, the place is really crowded and very poor.  Our guide, Naryan, explained that people move in from the villages to try to earn a living.  The air was very dirty and hard to breathe.  It was also quite fascinating in many ways.  We visited Thamel, which is crammed with shops and restaurants, a short walk from our hotel.  We bought lots of souvenirs there, of course.
