Namaste from Nepal

Greetings from Nepal!!

We are already one week into our Asia trip and it has been nothing short of magical...and already quite adventurous since the second we hopped in a cab at the airport.

Our trip started amongst the craziness of Kathmandu. We were overwhelmed with a divergence of cars, motorbikes, beeps, horns and monkeys dangling on electricity wires. But the smell of curry and incense in the air, friendliness of the people and the sheer realization of "we're in Nepal!" had us enjoying every minute of this beautiful country.

I'll touch up on the "adventure" part later (small hint: at the urging of our hostel and a few Nepalis we met along the way, we decided to get out of Kathmandu a day early to get away from a local election and political rallies!).

Right now we are relaxing in the small town of Pokhara, a hippie paradise nestled on a lake at the foot of the Himalayas. 

We will be here for the next week and after only being here for less than 2 days, we couldn't recommend this town enough!

Internet is dodgy, Nepalese momos (dumplings) are cheap and yoga is everywhere but for now enjoy a few snaps from our first day in Kathmandu.
