Gelukkig nieuwjaar!

Groot feest in Nepal deze week. Gisteren ging het jaar 2069 van start. Gelukkig nieuwjaar!
In het bijzonder in Bhaktapur zijn de festiviteiten groots. Een kleine impressie:

“Finally the residents of Bhaktapur have managed to pull the linga. This is a symbolic 150 meter long piece of wood, which reflects the key feature of the Bisket festival, the new year celebration. Unless and otherwise the linga has not been pulled upside completely, the festival can not proceed further, as is believed. After 48 hours delay tring to pull amid the politics from upper(tole/wijk) bhaktapur and lower bhaktapur, it has finally been confirmed that the festival is officially continuing, therefore, we can also officially celebrate it :)) Jayhos!
