Three bombs went off in Kathmandu today. We were barely, barely aware anything was wrong. A traffic jam in the downtown area. Tonnes of police on the streets. You’d think it was just another protest. Another political party making its point.
But no. Two people are dead. 21 injured. No one’s panicking, at least not in our neck of the woods. A bunch of us got the news over coffee and ginger coolers. A few smses, a debate over exactly what happened, and then everyone went back to ordering more drinks. Not that no one cared. It’s just that… the whole thing felt so distant and surreal when we found out.
Madly surfing the internet for more info now.
