Kathmandu, at Last

KATHMANDU, Nepal — Three hours.

It took slightly more than three hours to drive 99 kilometers from Majhimtar to Kathmandu. My backpack — which, after sitting on my lap for some six hours— felt like it weighed 200 pounds, so it was a relief to stand back up.

Sunlight had begun to fade, casting long shadows across the rough-paved streets of Kathmandu. Walking between the bus and my hotel, I came across a row of elaborately, hand-decorated bicycle rickshaws that sat silently.

Ready to find a room, I rushed to a nearby hotel temporarily lacking electricity and proceeded to wait for a bed to rest my weary head. It was good to be on solid ground once again.
