now sitting at home and kind of forgot what was it like in Nepal wiht 10 hours power cut every night. we have never been so bored and face each other and trying to look for topics of movies, novels... it's a shame i never watched lord of the rings or harry potter. and she never heard of razor gang.
thinking back now i think i enjoyed seeing a totally different culture. i kind of envy their patience with life, even it's hard, but they still manage to enjoy it. i was so pissed off with my hair dresser today who made me waited for fifty minutes and trying to trim three heads of hair at the same time, it must be unimaginable for Nepalis people. they wouldnt be mad like me either. like my tour guide, he would say, ' we are pengyou, no problem~~.
the last two days was the quickest, or maybe because i didn't write down anything for those two days. in Nagakot, where is a very peaceful little village, we stayed in a little guest house, cobuilt by a German lady and a local guy who are very passionate about the social work in Nepal. i would like to do more research on that. the manager on site was a Mogal Nepalis, who looked like in his early 30s but later told us he was 23. he was very friendly and helpful. chef in the kitchen sang a lot and if earlier in my trip, i would probably join him, but at that time, i was a bit worn off. we went off to another hotel's rooftop to see the sunset. there, we had a almost 180 degree view of the himalaya range. a sign told us thier names and the everst is among the numerous snowy peaks, but it looked a bit dwarfed for the distance further away from us. it was crispy and beautiful. our hands and head turned frosen but it was wroth all the wait.
before it got too dark, we went back to our hotel and ordered our meal. the fireplace was started, and then, only two of us, sitting in front of the warm fire,talking about every little piece of things we could think of. it was probably the most intimate moment in our friendship and we talked and talked for almost three hours. i thought i was a quiet person. then went on the balcony, there were all the starts that we could possibly see on this planet. with a few dog barks from quite a distance, glimmy lights from neighbours, it was complete dark with the starry sky. it was breathtaking.
the next morning, we went off to Bbhaktapur. it was one of the three captial cities in the Kathmandu valley and following some tips from other traveller's blog, we decided to live there for the last night. the archetecture was as beautiful, or even more stunning. with increased knowlege of the Hindu gods, this place was like a exam for us. i think i should write a little piece just on the various stories that we heard on our way.
we also met the most intersting guide, who spoke some CHinese mainly because of business. we met his brother on the way, as he was doing nothing much sitting on the Durbar square in the sunlight, like most typical local young men. i will write about the locals we met in another entry later, if i manage to understand them eventually.
