After months of traveling and then cataract surgery, the thread of this blog got lost. Sorry for the very long void. I left off after our second day in Nepal ....
We drove from Lumbini to Palpa in the dark through areas that had suffered landslides, etc. It was a terrible ride. The roads were a mess. When we got to Palpa we couldn't see anything and checked into rooms with no water. But, in the morning, this is the view from the patio where we ate breakfast.
|This is what is referred to as the White Lake, a layer of mist and clouds that settles over the valley and burns off later.|
|A little cafe where we had a nice breakfast of chana and tea.|
|It came with a resident baby.|
|The Tansen Durbar, a palace that was destroyed by the Maoists and is now being restored.|
|There are some very old alleys and buildings here. I really liked it.|
|We found this wonderful courtyard restaurant on the tiny square.|
Then on to Pokhara.....
