Well we are here! After a small marathon of flights we arrived in Kathmandu yesterday. We were a little late getting into Delhi yesterday and due to that and the backlog of people wanting to fly due to fog over the last few days we missed our connecting flight to KTM. As usual India was a mess of paperwork and ineptness. After some forceful negotiating (mostly on Kim's part) we arranged to get on the next flight out, after initially being told we would have to wait about 24 hours in transition. yeah that would not have been cool. Our luggage unfortunately did not make the flight and is supposedly coming in today around 2pm.

Once in Kathmandu Pradip met us at the airport and after filing some things with airport about our bags we traveled to his house in Lazimpat where we will be staying. The apartment is very nice, and is just down the street from the Danish Embassy. After arriving and dropping off our stuff we stopped by his shop in Thamel and the went out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Thamel House. Already tired from our 35+ hours of travel and add to that a few drinks at dinner and I had to fight hard not to fall asleep. Needless to say upon return to the apartment I slept like a rock.

We are very excited to finally be here! I'll add pictures and all that kind of stuff as soon as we have them.

  1. Hi Brian and Kim,

    Delighted to hear you are well and safe, perhaps tired. Around midnight our time I noticed you were on skype, but I could not tell if my note got through to you.

    Soon, Tom
