The playground "before" shots

Note the piles of rubble and rubbish the kids are playing in.

Storm coming

See the clothesline where 1/3 of my wardrobe was stolen

If I stood at my window all day I would have seen who stole my t shirt. When you only have three t shirts the stealing of one of them becomes fairly significant. Now I only have two shirts.

And this is the hospital. It is actually really beautiful and nice.

But around the corner is the rubbish river, which feeds the rubbish pigs, rubbish goats, rubbish chooks, rubbish dogs... rubbish children?

But the goats are pretty cute. I like rubbish goats.

The very tall temple and beautiful

Nyatapola temple, bhaktapur
Five stories, 30m higher than rest of town.
Perfect proportions. Survived earthquake of 1934.
Stairway flanked by stone figures. Each level you step up the figures are ten times as strong as the one below.

Monkeys have rabies and funny bums

But for some reason they have their own temple - swayambunath

Scooting from Kathmandu to bhaktapur is not covered by my insurance policy

But it was more fun than the bus!

My friendly driver, bag carrier, sim card seller, tea drinking, fish feeding, tour guide partner, Sanu. He spent 4 hrs driving me around and wouldn't let me pay him. But he did get my phone number so maybe his plan worked..

Mooooove off the road!
