The population density of Kathmandu is over 25,000 people per square mile so a sense of claustrophobia is only heightened by the narrow streets and alleys that make up the majority of Kathmandu's thoroughfares.  Non-stop hooting alerts other vehicles and pedestrians of the desire to overtake. Vehicles pass with inches to spare, but there is obviously method to the madness.

In the eastern half of the city, it is very unusual to see Westerners who congregate in the tourist areas of Thamel and Durbar Square. But even so, people on the street don't pay much attention to tourists aside from an occasional stolen glance. Nepalis in this remote 'rice bowl' region of southwestern Asia are generally friendly.
