Hello Dario

I am sure the city fathers did not anticipate such decay. All cities go thru it. Some officials are better than others in keep up with the times. The flags do add some excitement to the image. Sorry to see such neglect.

Default To holmertz: Dhampus / Millet

Thank you Gert,

I don't immediately remember Nepalese towns and villages as dirty.
Usually they're very dusty. At least in November they were.
And most of Kathmandu Valley is dusty, polluted and the roads have hardly any space for pedestrians or cyclists while there is a hectic motorized traffic.
Of course there was no hectic traffic in Dhampus. It's just a small place with several lodges for tourists but not in this old part of the village.

According to Wikipedia:
Millets are important crops in the semiarid tropics of Asia and Africa (especially in India, Mali, Nigeria and Niger) with 97% of millet production in developing countries!
So, indeed you must have tasted it on different of your journeys

Best regards,

Thank you,
I have rather strong memories of millet bread in South Sudan too.
