Jun 6, 2017 - Swayambhunath and departing Nepal

Our last two nights in Nepal were spent at the Kathmandu Eco Hotel, a bit of luxury in the middle of Thamel. Costing 35000 rupee including breakfast per night. Our room `Mandala` included prayer wheels, ornately hand painted walls and ceiling, parquetry floor, A/C and a bath tub with a shower with hot water. One night we ate ate the Yak restaurant and again had Tibetan hot millet beer but it wasn`t as good as the beer in Pokhara. On our last day we visited the Swayambhunath stupa, or monkey temple. This is a large complex sited on the top...

May 17, 2017 - Thamel - the noisy tourist hub

We are at Hotel Potala for two nights and our location is very central, being in the heart of Thamel which is the main tourist area. There are bars, restaurants and souvenir shops all around and the sound of music continues till around midnight. Yes truly party central. Grae's long hair invites offers of marijuana or hashish, nice! Our room is basic with a very narrow double bed, tv, wardrobe and side table. We have an ensuite with a shower, western toilet and tiny corner basin. The shower is not enclosed so the whole ensuite gets wet. The...

Feb 11, 2016 - China

So this trip, our first for 2016, we headed out to China to see the infamous Ice & Snow Festival, with a few stops for sightseeing along the way. We stayed in great four star hotels and ate so much Chinese and North Korean food that I was losing my New York accent (and my eyes are starting to look funny). We met up with our tour guide and about 50 fellow travelers at the Honolulu International Airport. This “herding of the cats” (AKA – trying to get “seniors” to move in unison/together) was a sample of what we were going to experience in...

Nov 29, 2013 - A Short Stop in China

Our flight left Kathmandu on time and we arrived in Guangzhou, China 45 minutes early. Must have had a good tail wind! We had originally been scheduled to have a layover of 7 hours and 50 minutes and were not looking forward to sitting in an airport, where a cup of coffee costs $10, for that long. To our surprise, when we reached immigration, the officer said that because our layover was now over 8 hours, we had the option of a free hotel room if we wanted it. We did! China now has a new rule that if you've got a layover of 72 hours or...

Aug 9, 2013 - WOTW

China diary. Aug 9 Window of the World. Amusement park is like Epcot internationalism but like Legoland for miniaturization. Saw no westerners at all. All Asian. Appeared to be mostly Chinese. WOTW is a typical theme park --but with a twist. Sno-cones in flavors of passion fruit, mango, guava, grass jelly and...strawberry. The most popular ride was called "the Alps". There you could ice skate, slide down a fake ice hill on an inner tube or snow board on a bunny hill. Everyone was quite excited about it. The English pubs drew an audience...

May 17, 2013 - Off and running

We've recovered from our misadventure in Causeway Bay and have bought tickets for the first leg of our journey, Hung Hom to Guangzhou East. We had originally intended going straight through to Yueyang but have decided to stop in Guangzhou for a few days. K's sister, who lives in Guangzhou, was planning to meet up with us in HK but got detained (!) in China and was unable to travel to HK. Luckily we are flexible enough in our travel arrangements to be able to change our schedule less than a week in to our trip! We could never have foreseen...
