Mo's Entery

We eventually find Kumari Lodge and settle in to this delightful, peaceful, beside a lake , balmy 26/27 degrees every day kind of place...after Kathmandu we take a great sigh ...Ahhhh!  We love Pokhara and realize there is lots for us to do here.  We start off by Mo having PIZZA and then walking to the peace pagoda, established by Japan.  Mike and I are good at getting lost and lots of little Nepalaese boys were willing to show us the way ...for some money...but we found our own way.  We also took an early morning taxi to see the sunrise over the Himalayas at Sangragot...wow!!!  We (I mean Mike) also rowed a boat out over Fewa lake but mostly we began each day having juice and making plans for rafting, trekking and paragliding.

A celebration called Divali was happening everywhere with lots of spontaneous dancing on the streets, kids going about in gangs to each business, singing and demanding rupees...especially from the tourists..fun but expensive. On the walk to the peace pagoda they actually blocked the trail and woldn't let us pass until we paid up...mike and I made them sing loud and dance long for their money.
