Here we are at Boudha stupa, this is destination number one for a traveller or pilgrim in Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu, it’s a gentle hearty cultural experience and for Buddhists it is of great inspiration.
We relax after a series of stupa circumambulations in aryia café eating Burritos and drinking Nepalese organic coffee, there are no cars in the square surrounding the Stupa and so makes for one of the most relaxed places to hang out with the children and let them run and explore, turn prayers on the Mani wheels and enjoy.
A little travellers tip for my friends and those who lurk here on fiddlesticks full of gypsy ambition, if your unfamiliar with the Indian/Himalayan subcontinent and are not ready for the mind trip that is India, come to this mountainous kingdom first, it will be a more soft landing for your cultural shocked adjustment.
(Although there still seems to be small issues with my camera lens clarity (or maybe it’s just my eyes) The Nikon shop in Delhi fixed, cleaned and serviced my D7000 for less than a smiley $50.
And so after 3 weeks of no camera, here I go again distracting myself with angles and settings and contemplating lens shopping in one of the black market ghettos.)
