Day 97 :: Leg 2 Begins Now



Day 97 - Kathmandu
-----

Welcome to the top of the world. Well, closer anyway.

Three weeks ago we had a fifteen minute conversation with two strangers about visiting Nepal eventually. Their adament advice?

"The monsoon is coming. Hurry."

We've now been in Kathmandu for two days and it's like nothing we've ever experienced. We've both dreamed of coming here for a long time and it's exactly what we imagined for a city that sits in the middle of the Himalayas. You get the feeling not much has changed here in the last hundred years. There doesn't seem to be a modern section to the city, nor has much been re-built to "look" like Nepal (which always seemed to be the case in China).

Tomorrow we begin our drift around Nepal. We'll start in Royal Chitwan National Park and go from there. Three weeks from now we'll be back in Kathmandu, which happens to have a great postal service for people who haven't had there favorite american candy (sour patch kids, american red licorice, jelly bellies, big and small chewy sweet tarts)or recieved any mail from home in way too long. So for anyone out there who happens to have friends traveling in Nepal, here's the address:

Full Name
Poste Restante
General Post Office
Kathmandu, Nepal

(Another magical part about Kathmandu = no zip code.)
