Back in hippie townApril 26 in Nepal
You can still see many white elderlies that are stuck in Pokhara since the hippie movement. Although it’s the second biggest city in Nepal, the lazy atmosphere, especially near the Phewa lake, has nothing in common with Kathmandu. Thus, we took some days to recover and the family restaurant next to our guesthouse became our regular dining room.
We also met Stijn there who is still busy building a hostel for the kids of a remote school. It was great to see him again after spending so much time together in Iran. And his stories about 7-year-old kids being so responsible for themselves, doing their laundry, cooking food for the group, and himself carrying and smashing huge rocks by hand for the construction were amazing!
And... it was time for Hauke to redeem his birthday voucher to go paragliding. Silke still has great ideas to make presents! It’s so amazing to glide through the air, noiseless, flying circles like a bird, using the upwind to go higher, drop down and go high again, watching the scenery from above. Thank you :)Read more
