There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first is excellent, the second good, and the third useless.

Nepal - Day 12

Came across a huge Maoist protest today near Jyatha, close to the royal palace, Lots of black and white flags were being waved and the military were swarming. Since we got here we have had to observe a lot of unofficial and official curfews, this is why. Everywhere you go there is a police or army check point, travelling anywhere today is going to be a night mare, and we were supposed to be making a trip out towards the mountains for the next few days as well. The districts of Banke, Dang, Syangja, Surkhet, Rukum, Kalikot, Jajarkot, Rolpa, Salyan and Gorkha are considered especially dangerous at the moment.
