We bought a lot of trinkets, catching up on retail therapy. We connected with Daughter's friends from her travels in India. We visited Sarangkot to see the early sunrise over the Annapurnas.
We walked the Phewa Lake.
It became virtually impossible to catch a taxi or bus again because the walking was so good. Everywhere was something different. Even all the shops that seemed to sell the same wares - the merchandise, the atmosphere (usually without power), the charm & attitude of the sales people, "Where are you from? I have a brother/uncle/cousin who lives there. You are my first customer today. It's bad for me to let you go without making a sale. What's your best price? Would you like a cup of masala tea?"
After a few days we decided it might be a better plan to return to Kathmandu in case of a further strike, because we had planes to catch & didn't want to miss them. We booked a bus. The plane fare to Pokhara cost approx $90US. The bus fare back cost $4.50Aus.
