TravelPod Member ReviewsGanesh Guest House Bhaktapur
Stan found this place called Ganesh Guest House situated in the heart of Bhaktapur and within minutes of Durbar, Taumadhi, and Dattatreya square. The couple who owned the place, Babi (the wife) and Ganesh (the husband, who found it easier to take on this name) were more hospitable and genuine than any other managers or owners we have met. Ganesh even went above and beyond to offer our friend, Netta, a room all to herself because the dormitory room she was in now had three chinese guys sleeping there too. That was the deal with dormitory rooms, but for the same (cheap) price he offered her a room all to herself so she could sleep comfortably. This kindness blew my mind.
We planned only one day in the Guest House but stayed four nights instead. Our room was cheap and small with three beds lining the floor. The bathroom was tiny with a toilet, sink, and shower that got everything wet when washing up. I came out of the bathroom laughing hysterically a fews times because the water from the toilet would pour out the back when flushing and while using the sink the pipe would spray your leg before you realized that you were soaked. But it was the perfect traveling experience and I would advise it to any traveler visiting Nepal.

We plodded quietly under the rain, shielding our faces with my umbrella but were promptly called to the booth. ...
... this is for antenatal use only. We visited the antenatal ward, where Rashmi demonstrated her exceptional skills as a midwife. She spoke with one of the women; she had been an inpatient for the last 3 weeks and was likely to remain so until delivery. You could see the woman light up, and hang on Rashmi's every word, the other women in the room were all looking on too, and wanting to tell her their stories. We spent around 10 minutes there whilst ...
... what anything on the menu was. Of course he again did a great job on ordering as I liked what I had. After dinner we went back to the train station to wait. On the platform were crates of baby chicks sitting. As I was looking through the holes, someone handed me one of the baby chicks. I do not know if the guy owned them, but I think he just saw me looking and opened up a box and grabbed one for me. It was cute to see and hold the baby chick while standing on a train ...

... world war z) I arrived in Kathmandu 28hours after leaving Cheltenham. I queued for my Nepalese visa, exchanged some dollars and caught a taxi to meet my Dad.
i dumped my bags and we both set out for a wander round. Trying to navigate the tourist map was difficult, we tried to find a place called the Garden of Dreams and ended up in the complete wrong direction! It was good to have a look around and get a feel for the city though. It was full of ...
