[HOT] round houses / huts + (Nepal HOT mapping)

Good insight about round buildings in Nepal. I saw a number of small round structures in #89 and remembered reading about towers built by Milarepa that are still standing, so I looked up the book reference, and it seems they are in that area, so I made them round and marked them as…houses. The towers are three, four stories tall. I've also seen round structures that look like corrals because of the shadows but are most likely houses.

It something looks like a small building (and some people live in very tiny 25' rectangular buildings in Nepal, like my grandmother did proving up her homestead in Wyoming) I've marked it. If there are people out there praying for help, I hope I can see their little hut and place it on the map.

Was just reading that :)  I'll go back over areas i've done - but i think we're missing a lot of these from other squares i've looked over.

Whoever is managing hotosm comms, might be worth tweeting/reminding all mappers: don't forget to map all round structures, even in middle of remote fields/hillsides, with building=yes. (Even if it might turn out to be a haystack.) 

And maybe add a link to the really helpful page below to the Instructions section of tasks.hotosm.org, just after the link to tutorial? Wish i'd read it a couple of days ago.
