The laidback air of Dhulikhel left us numb all throughout the trip to our next stop. We’re on an open-air bus and the countryside scene just captivated us. And then we realized that we missed our stop, the Durbar Square in Bhaktapur. We immediately asked everyone inside the bus on our whereabouts, and yes, we did miss our stop. Cheers to the best travelers in the world.

As greedy as we can be, we ordered almost everything on the menu posted on one of the walls. The dishes were written in Nepali and all we could do was to pick out what we thought would be great. And as the food kept coming, we were approached by a nice guy that seemed to be puzzled with us ordering everything on the menu; apparently, he’s the owner of the restaurant.

It was four in the morning, I woke up and just couldn’t go back to sleep. The chilly weather’s not helping either. I tossed and turned to wake my buddy’s deep slumber to no avail. And then I remembered that we’ve got some laundry work to do so I went to our tiny bathroom and started the job not minding the freezing water. After two hours of battling with the icy water, I finished the job. I went out to the clothesline right outside our door (we’re on the rooftop) passing by my buddy who was still dead to the world. And then the majestic sunrise greeted me as I started to drape our clothes, it was lovely that I needed to stop for a moment to savor it.

Five minutes. It took us five minutes to cross a 7-meter wide road in one piece. I’m the queen of the road when I cross the streets, in Manila. I'm having a hard time crossing a narrow strip of road, this really bothered me. Startled, I sat on a bench somewhere and started to grasp what was happening which pacified me after a while. And then something just popped out of me, What’s the rush Carla? You’re in Kathmandu, just enjoy it!
