We have had a very long day today - up at 3:15 am for 4:30 start to drive back to Delhi to catch a plane to Kathmandu.
Were sad to leave our "travel buddies" Hannah and Ron. We really enjoyed touring Northern India with them. They were a lot of fun and we had some good laughs together..
We arrived to beautiful bright sunshine. The Himalayas we stunning as we flew in. We could see the Annapurnia chain as we were seated on the left side of the plane.
It seems like the shopping is going to be unbelievable here - Ann saw a pearl ring on a shop girl (first store we went into) that she loved and wanted to know where she bought it. The girl told us and we went to that store which at the time was locked but the owner soon came running up and let us in. He did not have the ring that we described but was willing to make one for her. We took him back to the original store we were in and he looked at the shop girls ring........long story short - the girl ended up selling it to Ann - both were really happy with the deal.
We came back to the hotel - which by the way used to be part of the old palace. It is beautiful. Cant wait to take photos tomorrow in the daylight.
It is late now so must sign off.
Will try to get to use the computer tomorrow,
