Winding Down My Nepal Travels

KATHMANDU, Nepal — As my time in Nepal wound down, I made it a point to find a mailbox to send my postcards back to friends and family back home.

When I found one, it was a red metal box in the shape of a pagoda, its pointed roof and spire painted yellow and adorned with the words “LETTER BOX” across the middle and a “55” below that.

 

Having never seen a Nepali — or is it Nepalese? — mailbox, I trusted that this is what one would look like. I deposited my postcards and crossed my fingers.
