Carnival at Boudna 尼泊爾的哥哥姐姐節

There was an exceptional number of people at Boudna the day before yesterday with a small band playing instrumental music and people dancing. It was said to be the "brother day" in Nepal. It’s the day when girls visiting their "brothers" with flowers and the brothers have to give some money to their sisters, or something like that.
大前天去繞塔時很熱閙,有個小隊伍奏樂跳舞游行。據說當天是尼泊爾的“哥哥節",女孩子帶上漂亮的花朵到哥哥家(我想是不限於親生哥哥)拜訪,把花繫在哥哥手腕上,然後哥哥得給錢--像是我們過年要紅包吧。
 
Yesterday the number of people gathering around the stupa was simply unreal – all packed without any chance to move. Actually I can’t even get into the circular path due to the sheer number of people! Then I saw youngsters dressing in all sort of costume around. It turned out to be their "brother and sister day" when people just come out like a big carnival parade. Summer in Kathmandu is kindof busy.
昨天去繞塔,就更誇張了,人多到走不進去,擠的滿滿的,沒有一點空隙,真的萬一被人擠摔倒的話,有被踩死的可能。再問是怎麽一回事,原來是”哥哥姐姐節“,就是年輕人做各式裝扮(像是扮成農民、妖魔鬼怪、男扮女裝……)出游表演,像是嘉年華會吧。夏天的加德滿都還頗熱鬧的。
