I spent my last night here in Shalom Guesthouse. I am just starting to really love it here. I love my room! It is bright and cheery and has lots of windows. I am waiting here for Ram to come and take me over to my new flat where I will spending the rest of my stay. It will be nice to be able to unpack and settle in.
I went out for dinner last night with Ross and Andy, two fellow Shalom people. Andy is also an NMP student here on an elective at Patan Hospital. They took me to Downtown Restaurant and it was really good. I had palak paneer and naan. It was delicious! Andy is leaving for home today and Ross is leaving in a week. Feels like everyone is leaving Nepal just as I arrive!
Katie is taking me to Dhulikhel this afternoon after work via bus. It will take about 2 hours to go 30 kms. We will stay overnight with one of her friends and then do a small hike Saturday then head home. I am looking forward to getting away from Kathmandu for a bit and breathing some cleaner air! It is already getting to me. Last time I was here I spent more time in places like Nagarkot and Godivari so it wasn't quite so bad. Kathmandu is dusty and smoky and polluted by cars and motorcycles. I can't stop sneezing!
So I won't be blogging tonight and not until later tomorrow. I know you will miss me. :)
