admin adventures, conversations, interesting, Kathmandu, Nepal, taxi, travel stories

A family of 6 is walking down the road hoping to catch a taxi that uses meter. Missing one taxi their eyes stop on the person smiling in the taxi window.
– Jaimasiha! (A common Christian greeting in Nepal)
– Jaimasiha! Can you get us to “N”?
– Yes!
– Do you use meter?
– No.
– How much is it?
– 180. (It is 50 Rupees more than using meter)
Here I understand that not everyone that waves you a Christian greeting is actually a Christian.
