A man tired of his journey stops on the way having reached the summit of the street. He carries a Nepali style woven basket filled with wood shavings. He is quite a spectacle for local people.

On the top of the street there stands a taxi. The taxi driver carefully investigates the belly of his Maruti.

– Namaste! Is your car working?
– Yes!
– Do you know what time is it?

Taxi driver shows forth his old electronic watch and it’s 16:52 with colon blinking.

– How far is Bhanimandal?
– Bhanimandal?
– Yes.
– It is 1 kilometer from here.
– How much is to get there?
– 200, 100, whatever you like… The taxi driver smiles.
– I like 100.
