Flânerie

After getting thoroughly lost yesterday (trying to get home from Kathmanu Durbar Square, lower left corner of the map above), I walked the 3km from my friends' house in Bathbatheni (A) to Thamel (B) today, picked up some supplies for the upcoming trip, and back. Being driven around is very convenient but you don't get a real sense of the lay of the land until you have to navigate yourself! Walking you learn to recognize this popular graffiti character, appreciate a coffee in the truck store-turned cafe Engine, notice details at Bathbatheni Mandir, and get home just as the monsoon season afternoon rain cuts through the sun...
