i visited bandipur before dashain, so these pictures are a bit old. bandipur is pretty and quiet – the right kind of getaway from Kathmandu and it’s tya tyas and tutus…i’ve been reading Han Suyin’s The Mountain is Young, which is a story that takes place in Kathmandu. What she writes about and how she describes Kathmandu from the 1950s, all sound like a dream – a different world that seems so distant from the Kathmandu I know today and…yet there are so many things that also haven’t changed. I’m half way through the book, so I won’t write more about it right now. More when I’m done reading.
