Bishanku Narayan

Bishanku Narayan

From the top of the steps leading to the cave, there is a good view of both the valley I have been circling behind me, and the Kathmandu valley on the other side of the hill. The grotto is fairly unremarkable, but I do succeed in squeezing through the fissure.

I return exhausted to the hotel. I should have insisted on getting the saddle raised to a more comfortable height. Never mind. I take a shower and then sit in the roof-top café of a place called ‘Hot Breads’ eating cakes and sipping coffee to restore my energy. Every so often, the sound of fire-crackers destroys what passes for peace here, and nearly makes me spill my coffee.

I meet up with Bengt and Arnie (no sign of Zee) outside Pumpernickels, and we go off for some dinner at a restaurant Bengt found last week at the back of a bookshop. We exchange email addresses before parting.

On the way back to the hotel, I bump into Siling again as I stop off to buy some water at the supermarket. Kathmandu seems to be a bit like that.
