It’s been a few years since I’ve dusted off this little blog o’mine and tried to piece together an entry, and I imagine that my readership has changed some in that time (aka. from Dan and Amanda to nobody at all). As it’s a travel blog, I haven’t had much to write about these last few years, since I literally spent 95% of my time in my house, at work, or at school or clinical, and I had absolutely no time for anything else*.
That said, I’ll be starting this thingy back up today with a nice little video that sums up my first few days in Pokhara.
Also, my cursory bed bug check (following a 48-hour flight) in Kathmandu missed the mark, and not only did I walk away with legs that resembled bulging tubes of hamburger meat, but I also had to do a full-on de-bugging on my second day in the country. This means that I had to empty out and wash my bag, then send all of my possessions away to be boiled and ironed. I was left with no choice but to buy the only T-shirt I could find at the bus stop.
OK, well, I’m off to go get a $3 hair cut out of a lawn chair on the street from an 85-year old man who doesn’t speak any English.
