Where I stayed
After again very little, painful, broken sleep, rolled into Kathmandu at five am..ish, looking like zombies, us two pom's, the yank, and a vladimir shared a tiny little taxi from the outskirts to the central area of Thamel, got dropped somewhere random as usual, its very different here to India, no where is open and not many people around, or where we were at least.
Went with the one place that was open and it turned out well, big room and carpet! carpet, has never felt so good under your feet.
Asleep by six and slept in till one, missed our chance to get down to the Indian embassy which shuts at two o'clock on Friday went to a German bakery for lunch/breakfast and wandered around the streets lined with shops checking it all out and a few of the agencies offering trekking.
Finally able to get some money out so back on track, Claire got some shoes for walking, packed up our little bags ready for the morning, had dinner with Anton, more momo's!! down a back street,away from the expensive tourist hotspots and it was probably ten times better.
Arranged to leave the rest of our gear here in the hotel which was nice of them, and ready for an early start tomorrow!
