Kathmandu hasn’t changed much from my last visit and neither has the chaos in Thamel. There are touts, beggars and carpet salesmen everywhere. You can’t walk a meter without someone wanting to stop you and the rubbish still piles up on the street corners everywhere and still I like it.
Luckily if you want to get away from the hassle for a moment there is always the Kathmandu Guesthouse garden and it was here that we met up with Edwin, Ester, Jesper and Ria. It was great to see Ria and Edwin after such a long time and to meet Edwin’s wife and young son.
