Immediately upon seeing the challenge word that Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack selected for this week’s Travel Theme — Tangle — we thought of one of the first sights we saw in Nepal. In 2011, when we journeyed with our group to that country to build houses for Habitat International, we stayed in the Thamel District in Kathmandu. Naturally, we wanted to do some shopping in that teeming, crowded, exciting district.
But we were unprepared for what we saw tangled around poles on every street corner: wads and wads of wiring! No wonder blackouts were common even then.
And there’s no telling what this scene is like today after the April 2015 earthquake. Even more tangled, probably — and in more ways than one.
