This morning was the 96% eclipse of the sun here in
The leprosy clinic at Patan in KTM was the quietest I have ever seen. Schools and govt offices were closed. There are strong cultural traditions here regarding eclipses (http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-07/22/content_11749650.htm). We also heard that there were two bandhs going on in different parts of the valley.
