I'm still in Kathmandu. There's still no agreement between the Maoist and the government. The stike keep going. All transportation is stopped(except the bus to the airport), and shops too. We can only find restaurants and supermarkets at 18:00-20:00.
This evening the union members and the maoists were shouting on the street and force shops to close till they make an agreement with the government. But it's still safe to walk on the street.
There was a very big protest yesterday, maybe more than 100 thousands people go on the street, like a big parade. Every group take red flags, but beside the flag of the Maoists, different labor unions take different flags, the most interesting flag is from the restaurant & hotel labor union. There's fork, spoon and knif on it. haha
