On a field trip to a Hindu festival one afternoon with the children of Ama Ghar in Kathmandu Valley, we came across this booth that sold plastic buckets. To show how durable they are, one man repeatedly slammed each bucket against a rock while a child with a microphone repeats: "It won't break!" in Nepali. We ended up buying one before heading home. They're useful for washing clothes and taking bucket baths.
