My posts are a little out of order here, and now I’m flashing back to Saturday when we went to Bhaktapur. Most of the city was built well before Columbus reached America, to give you a sense of how ancient it is. It was only a short drive out of the city and it was nice to see the country side for the first time! It’s really was a day of aimless wandering. We meandered down small streets and alleyways, found a wood working shop and a restaurant with a great view of the city. There is no better way to describe the sights and the people besides in pictures, so for your visual enjoyment:
Children pulling water from an almost dry well.
Distant view of the Nhytapola Pagoda, the tallest temple in Nepal.
And there you have it – my collection of images from Bhoktapur, narrowed down from hundreds (not because they weren’t good, it’s that it takes hours to load a small few – the internet is so slow here). Stay tuned for a recap of our visit to a children’s orphanage and to a Buddhist monastery!
