A boy walks through a flock of pigeons in Kathmandu's Durbar Square. Rubble from last year's earthquake can be seen strewn about on the ground.
Nepal has long had ties to Great Britain, going back to when it first sent Gorkha soldiers to serve in the British army. As a result, many buildings have a noticeable Western-European influence.
It's hard to tell whether some structures were damaged by the earthquake or by time. The destructive effective of both can be seen in the cracks and the rust.
