Good morning from Kathmandu!
Doves are cooing outside our window. Shop front shutters are being rolled up. Motorcycle’s are beginning their infernal racket. The dogs are settling down. Dawn is arriving over Kathmandu. It was a short night.
We cleared immigration quickly, then waited in a mob for our luggage. There was much less mob by the time our bags finally began rolling out. About an hours anxious wait! Always a big relief. We all got everything!
We, with all our luggage, were met by Tendi and Binod. Wonderful to see my friends. Marigold garlands draped around our shoulders, gear loaded into a small bus and we headed through quiet dark streets to our hotel.
Rooms assigned, beers consumed bed called in the wee hours of the morning.
Slept well until 5 a.m.. not nearly long enough. It’s been a tiring beginning but always exciting.
