Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve celebrations here in Nepal’s second largest city were rowdy. It was the largest street party I’ve ever experienced anywhere with live bands, spontaneous folk-dance eruptions, bonfires, and lots of people running around in devil’s horns.

Kattina and I (along with Globejotting mascot Sven Wondermoose) threw ourselves into the fray, and risked lots of camera jostling to bring you this video.

Wherever in the world you celebrated the beginning of 2015, we hope it was festive, and we wish you an adventurous year ahead!
