Coined by a good friend of mine, Hornmandu as another label for the city of Kathmandu is quite apt. Here's why!
On the streets of Kathmandu there is just one traffic rule: there are no rules. What rules is horns. Horns rule how, where and when traffic moves! Horns drive Kathmandu traffic. How?
Nepalese are cavaliers...when it comes to riding motorbikes or shuttling others on the vehicle.
When rules and regulations go out the window, the reckless rules and the ordinary suffer!
Traffic in Kathmandu is beyond bad! It's absurd...but then what system in Nepal isn't?! I have decided that one of the ways of dealing and coping with it is to make jokes and laugh about it. (The other option is to go mad, go crazy!) Here are two jokes Jerry Seinfeld might crack about it.
