Sunday afternoon stroll…

Sunday March 8th was International Women’s Day and thanks to the Government of Nepal a holiday for my colleagues and I. I made the most of this rare Sunday off work to join friends on a little stroll. We started from Gamcha, a small village not far form Kathmandu and spent a couple of hours heading up to the Summit Village Lodge for a spot of lunch;

#5 A spectacular daal bhaat lunch was served, and though the distant Himalaya were somewhat hidden the view of the valley still provided a fantastic backdrop;

#6 I even managed to find space for the scrumptious dessert;

#7 And a gentle stroll back down to another village Lamatar, admiring vistas across the valley, to get the bus back to the city. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday…
