The festival of rain hits the capital

Here is my latest post for the Toronto Star's New Kids on the Blog.

It's Rato Machhendranath Jatra here, and this festival is like nothing I have ever experienced before.

I hope you enjoy the piece. It is definitely worth checking out for the video (shot by the very talented Michael Lundin) alone.


  1. So have the gotten this thing unstuck ??

  2. Scott. Yup! And the astrological signs line up again. We're good to go! Tomorrow morning women get to pull the chariot through the streets. Obviously I am going ;o)
