Hey all,

Weleft for Kathmandu on 7th April and we havent had a chance to update our blog so here goes...

WE left our hole in the wall hotel in Delhi and got to the airport to catch our flight to Nepal -we had our first drama of the trip, our tickets werent confirmed and despite having forked over 120quid back home for the tickets, we had to give 100 for a one way ticket as they cancelled our ticket to Kathmandu...GRRRR were skint now...

We arrived at Kathmandu airport, glad to have actually got there without any further problems. Our tour organiser Hari met us at the airport and we were relieved that he wasnt a weirdo (like our last driver- more on that in person...) but genuinely extremely lovely. We were greeted with garlands!! too funnyyyyy...

Our hotel was amazing and we knew from the moment we got in the car that we were going to love it in Nepal.

That night we went walking around the streets of Thamel - one of the liveliest places weve been as yet , we did get a little lost as all the streets look alike and as it was raining we got drenched. THe experience was quite surreal as it started thundering and lightening but made our night there all the more special - its not usual for it to start raining so early - typical huh?

The next day we went sight seeing with our driver and guide who showed us places like pashupathinath, boudhnath, bhaktapur ( lovely self-contained ancient city with lots of handicrafts) and the Monkey Temple. Our camera ran out of battery by the time we got the the monkey temple, which exhibited the best overview of the whole of kathmandu. It was simply breathtaking.

We really enjoyed our time in Kathmandui and couldnt wait to come back at the end because the people are so lovely and make visiting the country a memorable one. The kids are sooo darn cute!!

Nisha felt a little like a giant as all the guys are 5ft 4 and under even the good looking ones...lol, and trust me Nepal does have talent! Ur missing out girls lol :p

We leave for Pokhara tomorrow, its a 7 hour journey by road. Its supposed to host some of the best views of the Annapurna range from a distance...cant wait.

More later....
