Last week I went to the tailor to make a pair of jeans shorts. It is very cheap here in Nepal. 1000 rupies (70 sek) fabric included.
After 10 days I could pick it up. I went to the tailor after 10 days and he said 3 more days. After 3 days there was 2 days, 1 day and then 2 hours. So after 16 days and 2 hours I finally got my jeans shorts. Very nice and fit really good.
Thats how the life is here and you get use to it. And it has it's charm!
