And from charming Thamel

Where the streets are paved with this. Isn't it lovely. You need to have your wits about you at all times. Good thing I finally have my glasses and can avoid such hazards. Not everyone is so lucky, and of course when you jump out of a taxi it can be very tricky. But the rivers are full and we have electricity. And mould.
Robin, Jamie and I went for lunch to the Sterling Club and now they are sitting around playing Techno Kitty on the iPad - how stupid! Both over 40 and should know better - but it is such fun.
We booked our flights for Sri Lanka yesterday so are looking forward to  making the tight connection in Delhi on 23rd. Fingers crossed. Otherwise it will be a seriously tedious 24 hours sitting in the airport waiting for the next flight.
Today is Gai Jatra (Cow Festival) where the family of anyone who has died in the last year can dress up as a cow or a hermit and groups of them wander around town beating drums. Of course.
And just so you know I didn't forget, I offer this to you from yesterday's paper (you guessed, The Kathmandu Post) to explain the dire state of politics in Nepal. Five points, seven points, no bloody point at all! Enjoy.
