So much has happened since we went to Nepal together, at the beginning of this year. I returned to the U.S. for a few months, and in that time, the devastating earthquake hit Nepal. The streets that share some of my fondest memories were cracked apart and buried in rubble. Thousands of lives were lost. I felt so helpless, half-a-world away. I ached for the people of Nepal.
Now, because of our trouble getting a marriage certificate, and the time that has taken, I have to go back to Nepal for a visa run. Only this time, I’ll be going alone.
I’d like to have gone with my husband, as we both really enjoyed our experiences in Nepal, but we have heard that there is a lot of trouble at the borders lately. Borders have been opening and closing, as conflict in Nepal is on the rise. Because of this, I will be flying in to Nepal. Since my husband doesn’t have a passport yet, the only choice I have left, is to go alone.
Luckily, I’m not unaccustomed to travelling alone. I’m quite good at it, in fact.
I just don’t know what to expect when returning to Nepal… The destruction, the current crisis they are facing… What will it be like? I’ll be sure to write about it.
So what do I plan to do in Nepal for a day? I plan to feast on Nepali food, buy some tea, and relax in my hotel until it’s time to leave.
These pictures are from our last visit to Nepal, in January of 2015. To view a few of the photos from the trip, follow my Nepal pinterest board.
