in between europe and kyrgyzstan
i also made a quick trip to pokhara
and lakeside never gets old
didn’t go boating but it’s a good
reminder when i drowned in this lake
i really want to paddle board someday soon
but this trip i only looked at adverts and fantasized
we went to white rabbit coffee for brunch
and the breakfast was filling and reasonable
lakeside has a lot of good bookstores
where they also sell second hand books
since it was monsoon
the rains were inevitable
but my favourite part was a ride to the other end of lakeside
away from the touristy facade where people lived their simple lives
remember her story?
she’s still waiting
for her daddy
but doesn’t want
a bicycle anymore…
to come home
on her birthday
to bring bicycle
for her birthday
…the siblings waiting for their mother to come
and fill the cart with oranges to be sold for the day.
One thing I have noticed from my last few days stay in Kathmandu is that people are BUYING.
The city feels like it is infested with shopaholics.
