Beautiful countryside on the way to Nagarkot.
As there is a big community of Tibetan refuges their influence is visible everywhere.

From Nepal we flew to Bombay for a few days. Here's a picture of the "Gate to India" taken from our hotel window. We stayed at the Taj Mahal, the hotel with was attacked four years ago by terrorist. As it happened, my husband was staying at that hotel on that day, but luckily checked out a few hours before the attack. The hotel with its wonderful history has been totally renovated and is back to its former glory.
4On a little tour around town we saw the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly known as Victoria Station) which was another scene of the shooting on that fateful day!
Dhoby Ghaut, which means washing place in Hindi, where thousands and thousands of pieces of laundry are washed and dried everyday, and all by hand!
The Tiffin wallahs, another Bombay institution. Around 200'000 tiffins (lunch boxes) are picked up every day from their respective homes, delivered to the owners at their offices and then later in the afternoon picked up again and brought back home. Apparently with absolutely no mistakes or lost boxes. Supply chain at its finest!
And lastly the Mahatma Gandhi museum
And now it's back with the nose to the grindstone. I can't believe how fast Christmas is approaching. I'm not yet in the right mood; are you?
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
