... We visited the Garden of Dreams, a tranquil little garden in the middle of all the craziness. A really pretty spot to just chill out and relax. Steak for dinner which was pretty good as while we are on the trek I doubt we'll be getting much decent food. It was an early one for us as we are not well. Had to say bye to Shane and Sushant.

After lunch we headed back out into the city ...
... artistic and interesting wall murals in and around Kathmandu in the public domain. There was one that captured my imagination but located on the reception wall of La Casa Lodge, Freak St - a controversial erotic painting of a purple Buddha engaged in a sex act. The meaning of the wall mural actually requires a deeper understanding of the philosophy of which I am lacking. The visual impact however left a deep impression on me.
