Travel Blogs from Nagarkot
A typical day in service starts when I wake up at 5:40am and then I make breakfast and get dressed. Then at 7:00am I walk to the bus.

Our guest house was similar to the first but catered for more tourists, so they kindly put some 'western' music on for us over lunch... Unfortunately their choice was Justin beiber aaaaaaagh! Dinner time was much much better when they played ...
... all around. Along the trail were chortens and incredible mani walls. What’s a mani wall? Well, it’s a pile of stones that forms a long wall that separates directions on a thoroughfare. In Tibetan Buddhism one must always circumnavigate such religious shrines towards the left (clockwise direction) for good karma. The walls are covered with flat stones into which prayers are carved.
