Bussing It Upper Class in Nepal

The inside of a Nepali bus is always overcrowded, hot and uncomfortable. The roof of the bus is usually less overcrowded, less hot (thanks to the breeze) and uncomfortable. We took a ride in the upper class for our last bus ride in Nepal, and came away with some new bruises and a wonderful sense of relief due to the fact that there were to be no more Nepali busses on this trip.

The strange faces we a re pulling are probably due to the fact that the bus has just swerved to avoid hitting another car or a sleeping cow or a child using the road as a toilet. When you're on top of the bus and it swerves, it feels far more dramatic and precarious than when you're safely nestled inside, hence the rough heads.
