Favorite city and reason
My favorite city is Paris and Pokhara. In Paris, I liked the art, the musical environment on the train, and street walking. In Pokhara, the lake and the surrounding environment fascinate me.
Things you like about the city you’re currently living in
Kathmandu is surrounded by hills and mountains, and I love hiking around the city.
City in the world that you would like to visit
I would love to go to Oslo and Prague. I have been there once, and I find these cities calling me back from time to time.
The craziest thing you’ve done in a city
While I was in Paris, I went to the Eiffel Tower and stayed there from 2 pm to 8 pm in the evening. This’d be the craziest thing that I’ve done.
Things you dislike about city life
The dust and noise pollution are some of the w orst things about any city.
