Welcome to Nepal

We didn’t fly in over Tibet, as we had hoped. Instead we headed south over Myanmar and circled back north to Nepal. Our landing was a bit exciting with a hop, a skid, and some heavy braking.
We then waited in line for a visa for an hour and then skipped through immigration and customs. We had a wild ride into the city ( great driver, insane roads and traffic) to arrive at the peace and quiet of Kantipur Temple House Hotel. A chai on the rooftop, bed turndown service with hot water bottle and a great dinner of dahl, baht and veggies and now to bed.
Pictures below from the plane, the roof of the hotel and our room ( including Julie enjoying the hot water bottle).  More tomorrow, need to sleep off the jet lag.

    1. That is an alcove in our room. The hotel is quite lovely – built in the style of a Newari temple. I will post an exterior shot today. You can see some more about the hotel at their site – just google Kantipur Temple House Kathmandu.
