The plane to Pokara

 

After trekking we went back to Kathmandu. The first thing was to eat some good food! Haha because in the moutain, we had only egg and bread. So need some more protein :D

But nothing to do in Kathmandu so we moved again to Pokara, don't know either what to do there but we should leave this town. Maybe another trek?? Not sure. Or just to feel some fresh air? :D

We met Reshma, Shapi and Gareth again. What a co-incident! Reshma just back from Pokara and walked on the street in Thamel, Shapi and Gareth just woke up and came here. Ale and I was there to post some stuff back home.

Strange but was nice to meet them again since we said bye in India two weeks ago. A few chat, had to say good bye. Shapi and Garet were going to Pokara too, by bus. We meants to meet them again tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock at Everest Steak house which now we're all don't know where is it?

Ale and I took a plane to Pokara. It was a small plane. Only 12 people there. We don't know where to live .. so we followed where the taxi drove us. Lucky us that it was a nice guesthouse and not expensive, Karki Guesthouse.  After unpacked, we don't know what to do. Why we're here? Looked at each other and got no answer.

Pokara is a big city in the middle of Nepal. It's also a beginning of trekking Anapurna range. But we didn't come to trek, aren't we? Ale was interested in trekking again but for me, just one time in one trip would be enough :D .

Fewa Lake!
.. Langtang Moutain made me love to trek but as I haven't got any suitable clothes and shoes and etc.  so  ... better keep it for next time? .. Later Ale agreed, one time in one trip would be better :) (Maybe he doesn't wanna see me die haha ... )

There is one big-long lake located in the Pokhara Valley near Sarangkot, it's Fewa Lake. They said it's the second largest lake in Nepal. You can sail the boat, they have some for rent, in the lake. Beautiful view. You will be enjoy walking along the lake during the day or the night. There has shops, pubs and restaurants but more quiet than Thamel in Kathmandu. As people come here to trek so they just stopped at Pokara one or two night . For us, we don't trek so we don't have anything else to do. We came to wait for Shapi and Garet at Everest Steak House.

I like this picture. And love the way they dry the clothes.
Thought they wouldn't come but they did. Thought they don't like steak haha ..

Great night with them, too bad that Reshma can't join. Said good bye that night, tomorrow they had to go to Goa but we're still there. We looked for a motorbike for rent. In Pokara, the best vehicle is Motorbike or bicycle. Ale looked for the Enfield to rent and there has only one place that has Enfield, it's Busy Bee. The owners are from Europe. At that time their Enfields were all rent. I let Ale talked to them and I walked back to the guesthouse. During the way to go back, stopped at one restaurant to eat then again, a nepali guy came to say Hi and asked to join my table. It's like the one who I met in India. Same conversations haha do they learn from the same flirting school? Anyway, he's not bad. Quite a bit shy.

Gya Kok, recommended menu from guide book.
 At that time, Ale walked pass by so I called him. Then that guy was fade away but he doesn't forget to give me his mobile and email address without any asking from me :D Haha.

We met Ratna, our guide again at Pokara. Co-incident or maybe Nepal is very small. He was really happy to see us again, we're too. He said now he got a job again to be the guide for swedish and russian to Annapurna. It was funny we met him because we just had a thought of him and talked about the thing in Langtang then 5 minutes after, we met him real. Nice ha?

That night, we had dinner at Tibetian Restaurant. Guide book says "a must to go". We did. We ordered Gya Kok, it's a recommend dish! Looks like Suki Yaki or noodle glass soup. Not bad. But it's quite expensive, 600 baht per pot.

Tibetian Beer, don't know what kind of seed.
We'd like to order some beer and as we met a couple who we met in Langtang and they recommended Tibetian Beer so Ale tried. It served in a stainless cup. Looks nice but the taste was different from other beer. (see the picture). It's produced by the fermentation of water and the seed which I don't know which one? I can say that I am scared to drink so I just sipped it. Ale tried more but couldn't finish it either. We're full that night and got back to the guesthouse. 

The day after, Ale got diarrhea which was continue for 2 days. He was living in the toilet instead of the room. We thought because of that Tibetian Beer. Lucky me that I just sipped. We asked the hotel guy, he said maybe the water to make the beer is not clean. Nice to try something different but sometimes should be careful of what you eat or drink more.

After he got better, we went back to Kathmandu again. And here, another chance to meet Reshma, our good Indian-English friend.
