    Thamel Chowk is the shopper’s hub, the place to buy, sell, rent and enjoy. Located on the north region of Kathmandu, this is the one stop solution for all your problems while in Kathmandu. Crowded streets are lined up with shops on all the ends. Hotels ranging from luxury to economy, shops for hiking gear, clothing, eateries. This area is a short walk from our Hotel and as it was an early morning, a place for coffee and cake.Read more

    Mulberry Hotel Kathmandu

    We are now back in Kathmandu at the Mulberry Hotel even in the same room.

    Whilst we did no really like this Hotel at the beginning of our holiday in Kathmandu after the ones we stayed in whilst in Tibet it does seem much better.

    We have dropped the washing off, completed the last minute touristy things and had lunch. Now back at the Hotel catching u on all the things you need WIFI and Google interesting how much you really on the internet these days.Read more

    Catching up in Kathmandu

    May 18 in Nepal ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Most of the afternoon was spent in our room at the Mulberry Hotel catching up on the blog and plans for our trip to Bhutan and little shopping.

    We did pop out for dinner at a little cafe 5 min away from the Hotel. Kathmandu at night is pretty dead.

    Old Town

    May 19 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We continued our walk after lunch through an old part of Thamel which we had previously passed through briefly at night when we were here last week. Some interesting buildings and stupa's. It is a very busy and dusty street. As one store owner said this is Dustmandu.

    We even found the smallest shop we have seen during our travels it was like a hole in the wall.Read more

    Looking for Moving Tiger

    May 19 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We continued walking around Thamel Dustmandu looking in a number of stores for a Nepalise game called Moving Tiger which John had researched and found out about. Apparently it is not something tourists ask for as in the stores which had them they were found hidden away and covered in dust. We did find quite a nice one which was a little more expensive than we wanted to pay but we thought that it would be a great and interesting souvenier from Nepal and that we could teach the A Team and Charlie how to play. It is unlike any other game we have played. John even played a game with the store owner to see how it went and he lost.Read more

    Farewell Nepal

    May 19 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Last night in Kathmandu we have had a wonderful time sightseeing here, Pokhara and in Chitwan. Helicopter to Annapurna was great but Mount Everest Base Camp would have been better. At least today we did get to see Everest and hope to see it again.

    And work begins

    November 5 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Porridge, ready for a hard days work! We then ventured to the school a few 100m away on Nepali Flat = up and down. Through a rural village, chickens, goats, cows in barns and a small veg plot! On arriving at the school we were great by stares and giggles and wonderment. Some of these children had never seen westerners! And not ones my hight or a red headed bearded Celt like Adam ( guy on trip) we were officially welcomed by the school govner and local MP, and we each had a string of marigolds we then set to work, demolishing 2 classrooms and a stage area, ready for our 6 classrooms. Whatever was demolished needed to be kept as useful as possible, so no sledgehammers here!! I set to work with Andy on the Maths room, 4 guys on the roofs the others shovelling the stage away, rocks dirt and more rocks. We worked as a in team and onto about 4:30 - back to the camp dinner at 6 and most people were in bed at 8:30. A full day, but a good dayRead more
