Buddhists, Foods and Friends
We were so excited to start eating every fresh vegetable in sight, however Kevin's stomach had not agreed with the burger we had and spent the next few days in bed. Bad luck for Kevy!
Otherwise we were running around the city as we had got in touch with our new network of friends from trekking buddies and farm pals and we caught up with them over the next few days .
We spent a lot of time eating and finding trinkets and presents to send home. We also looked into taking a white water rafting trip near Pokhara but the season was not right and that meant a lot more time on a bus- no thanks. We opted to explore more of the Valley before we left.
We visited a huge Buddhist monastery one day and ran into one of the girls from the Eco Farm and got to sit in on a Q&A with a real life Buddhist.
We became obsessed with a Israeli restaurant with fresh food and cozy cushions to sit on. We met up with our American friend from Cappadocia one evening whom we just happened to message. Ariel got her ears pierced in a jewellery shop and since their power was not on they used flashlights to light their way. And finally we scoured the city or the cheapest mail office and found out that despite advertisement for sea mail it doesn't exist unless you are shipping a few tonnes from India! On our very last day we went back to our first Workaway and found that the 2 pregnant dogs had their puppies and they were adorable. They were very happy to see us but the wife kept saying how she barely recognized Kevin as he had lost so much weight with the trek/food poisoning!
And then it was time to leave. We were both sad to leave Nepal as we had learnt and seen so much and yet wanted more. We are both keen to come back for more adventures, but for now it was time to move on to Australia and hopefully find some paid work to continue our travels.
