I just had to share this video. It shows the damages of Kathmandu after the earthquake. The worst part of this tragedy is of course the deaths and injuries caused by the earthquake, but when you see this video, you realize that an important part of Nepal’s history is gone. Kathmandu Valley is full of amazing, old temples and there are even seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites here.
I visited Nepal two years ago, and I always tell people that Kathmandu is one of the most picturesque cities I have visited. Seeing the landmarks I remember as so beautiful, destroyed, makes me very sad. I remember I had lunch at a roof top terrace overlooking Durbar Square, which is in ruins now. I spent hours at the “Monkey Temple” taking pictures, and now parts of it are destroyed. I can’t believe how fast things can change.
