Nepal - January 8, 2009 - Pokhara

We took an easy morning. Eric slept in, while Lois and I went in search of an ATM, and ended up doing some shopping along the way. I bought two neat embroidered T-shirts, but Lois found a gorgeous pair of brass elephant door handles.

Then we went to see Devi's Fall, not much of a torrent at this time of year, but you can see the gorge that it has carved. Then we crossed the street to the cave that the river has created, and explored what is supposed to be the largest cave in Nepal. Compared to caves in the U.S. it is tiny, but it has some very interesting lacy stalagtites.


After lunch we caught up on email, and before going out to dinner learned that our plane to Kathmandu tomorrow has been moved from 9:30 to 8:30am! But things are pretty informal here--we're told half an hour before flight time is plenty of time to be at the airport!


It was hard to find a restaurant open this evening because the workers are on strike! However, we found a good Chinese restaurant open, that served us huge portions.

And so back to the hotel to pack and get ready for tomorrow's visit to Kathmandu.
