The hotel is very basic but clean and with hot water. It is also in a perfect part of town for restaurants, cafes and walks to sights. Downfall is that the place does not have heating so when it's cold...it's cold. They do rent room heaters but they give off such a glow that you end off turning them off in the middle of the night and they really didn't provide that much heat. They way to go is to ask for a hot water bottle when you are ready to go bed. It kept the bed cosy and warm all night long.

I couldn't remember the directions so I was no help when we didn't find it where it was expected. We asked a policeman, then someone else, and finally a man said he would show us. When he left us - pointing the way - we ran into Suzanne and Mike and eventually we found it. It is an old ...
In the morning we were woken by the sound of numerous animals. First were the dogs barking at around 3am, then the chickens at 5:20 it was a true farm experience. We got up and had our dosa (potatoes with spices) eggs and jipatis and off to the factory we went. We learnt how the leaves are processed into tea and what has to take place when it's a great thing to see with a long but reasonably easy process. It was really ...
... before being housed on shelves in a cool room. Here, for the first time in a few months, we could smell proper cheese! Ok, it wasn't of the soft variety, and the smell wasn't anywhere as good as in Neal's Yard in Borough Market, but still, we were pleased. After a small taster, we purchased 400 grams of Kanchan Cheese for Rs 260, and made our way back to Phikkal in another taxi. Our next stop was Phikkal's tea factory, where Deepak's tea is processed. Here, we were treated to a tour ...
... to Katmandu the next day. A chirpy guy but hard to understand with his thick accent. Then Christie showed up, a cute American girl only 18 years old originally from New York but now residing in North Carolina. Her college were subbing her trip as long as she does some volunteering along the way, not a bad deal. She was traveling alone. We had a lovely conversation and I really admired her courage ...
... police to radio ahead, stop the bus, get the boots, and stick 'em in the police station further down the road. Also, I’d paid a man to take the mission to retrieve my boots from down the road. The result was an afternoon hanging out with the very hospitable, friendly police at the police station, sweating my ass off in the heat. In the end my boots arrived back in town, and I took a bus north to Dharan.
Arriving in Dharan finally felt like living in ...
