Little oil lamps outside a street temple in Kathmandu, Nepal

Arriving in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal after coming from the dry highlands of Tibet, was a very interesting experience. As close together as the countries geographically are, for the rest they are miles apart. The country is wet and green, the people are friendly and open and the whole experience is just so diverse. We felt like winning a prize or so, even though the 'streets' were covered in mud, rubbish lingered in the streets and much more. We spent around 10 days in Nepal, of which a great deal in and around Kathmandu. I just loved wandering around the little alleys and squares, finding a surprise behind every corner. Also great was the shopping. There were so many little shops with fantastic souvenirs. Also the food made us very happy, we were often seen at Or2K, an Israeli restaurant with the best food in the world. We shipped a whole lot of souvenirs from this city and might have shipped even more if we had known what we'd encounter in the countries that lay ahead: India, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Iran.
