Shopping and discovery of Kathmandu

semi-overcast 25 °C










We went shopping in Thamel, which is the tourist area where you have shops after shops after shops, restaurants after restaurants and internet places after internet places...

We tried a couple of restaurants from the guide du routard which were lovely and in particular a little coffee shop called The Organic Cafe and Farmers Bar.

We also went to get some clothes made to measure ... I wanted the kids to have a nepalese outfit so they have a nice shirt and baggy trousers.. and I have bought a couple of dresses for work and 2 tops... Julien got a tunique for his role plays and Anne did not get anything... We also managed to get the tailor to commit to provide the orphanage with left over materials so that they can do crafts...

Teo and Julien bought a traditional singing bowl, Hayden bought a traditional musical instrument and I bought a head band!...

We also bought a lot of DVD for the school ... 96 in total so they should have enough for the whole year!

We walked in a lot of back streets and saw a lot of interesting buildings and people as you can see...
