I've been in Nepal for two days. I've mostly spent my time in Kathmandu working out all the logistics for our first trek and preparing. Everything is ready though and we head out early in the morning. I should have a couple of days to just spend exploring in between the treks and after.

Katmandu is a very different city than any other I've been too.
Almost everyone speaks english, but I learned to politely say "hello" and more importantly, to say "no thank you". 
Not usually the most exciting thing, but I was really happy to see this bed the first night.

The all important and slightly difficult to find Free Individual Trekking TIMS permit. 

I don't know if I'll do any posting the trail, but I hope I'll have good pictures to share in a couple weeks. 


  1. Glad you made it, and glad you'er still safe. I remember thinking that Kathmandu was the strangest place I'd been when I visited. After months in a Muslim country, I was unprepared for a buddhist/hindu nation, I didn't expect everyone to speak English, or for there to be anywhere near that many tourists! I think I took a picture of a street scene very similar to the one you did, too.

    It's a remarkable place; hope you enjoy the rest of your time there!
