Finally the day for the awaited trip had arrived.We boarded our flight to Kathmandu from New Delhi. Prior to that,taking advantage of the import free shops ,we dropped some exquisite scotch onto our shopping cart.We reached Kathmandu in noon.We were heartily Received by our freinds from Nepal.We grabbed a quick bite at a local hotel and coordinated our trip from there.The food was pretty much Indian.Thereafter we checked into a local hotel of Kathmandu in Thamel region.In the evening we went to the famous Pashupatinath Temple for the arti. Even an atheist would be moved seeing the faith of the people there. Afterwards we shopped local clothes from Thamel market and went to see the nightlife of Kathmandu.Of the many exquisite items some that can be bought are shawls,khukri, Nepali cap,stoles etc.There are multiple bars offering good music and djs.However to get the real feels one must hit the pubs and bars on friday evening which is like saturday night in India.It being a sunday offered as a lacklusture evening. We snacked onto the food and returned to our hotel pretty much satisfied with the first day at a foreign land.
