Mahandrepul Roam

Walking down the mountain onto the road to grab a cab or a bus, we begin our monastery break. After a transfer at Harichowk, we catch another bus, or van to Chipeldhunga to be dropped off at the circle right below my favorite restaurant, Almonds. Time for a walk, some purchases, and a non-veg dinner.

 Riding in the front seat of the van, it is good to know the Gods are with us. On the dashboard, all vehicles in Nepal have deities with offerings; hopefully to balance out the absence of seat belts.
And the next photo on my camera, right after the assurance bit above...

Fresh Popcorn Anyone?

Mobile Help

And now for a change of pace- Salways. The last time I was in Nepal, Salways had rats scuttling across the floor during the daytime. They're gone, so is the old floor and an expansion has tripled the store's square footage. Life is good.

And now for that non-veg dinner at Thakali Bhanchaha, a Tibetan Restuarant in town.
