That Stinks!

You got the main road to the dump running through your town and you need money for a dude's operation....close the road and force an end to trash pickup in Kathmandu. Want a road paved in another town, close the road to the dump and let trash pile up in the city.
Kathmandu has been hit with a couple of these strikes in the last two months. It is amazing walking down the streets that have piles of garbage a few meters wide and 15 meters long. Usually there is a goat or a cow or two in the middle of them. The smell is as wonderful as you would imagine. In some areas, you just got to walk on top of the garbage because the entire street is covered.
