I used to download osm data for Nepal from BBBike.org. Recently Geofabrik
has made extract of osm data for Nepal availble.

I just observed that the data from bbbike is 19mb while from geofabrik is
25mb. Both are in osm.bz2 format. The area selected in bbbike is greater
than the area in geofabrik, but the data size is smaller. Why is such a
difference in data?
