Travels in Nepal

Urban Nepal

NEPAL | Sunday, 12 November 2017 | Views [207]

My travel mate Judy and I just spent many hours exploring the Thamal district of Kathmandu. This is a touristy part of the city that went from fairly tame in the early morning to loud and bustling by midday. It is really easy to be run over by vehicles in these narrow streets and pedestrians are definitely seen as roadblocks 😱... I was shocked by the electrical grid (see pictures in gallery). No wonder there ate rolling blackouts throughout the day! I was heartened to see many small bowls  of scraps left out for the stray dogs, which made me somewhat less stressed about their welfare. 

I've uploaded some pics from our wanderings in the photo gallery.

Next on the agenda is dinner and orientation with our habitat teammates.
