      A portion of the "Naya Bihana (A New Dawn for Nepal) mural in San Francisco's Balmy AlleyThere is almost nary a vertical surface in this alley that does not have a speck of paint on it.

      Mural after mural lines the walls, garages, fences and even the potted plants of this infamous alley, where, since the 1970s, muralists from near and afar have been celebrating the family life and cultural traditions of the neighborhood’s residents.
