Trekking in Nepal, Part 1 of Shadow of Everest & Beyond by Kerina Rowley

We went to Dhulikhel and visited B.P. Shresta's hospital. He's doing a really cool thing there. The have lots of modern equipment including a MRI & CT machines. Also in Dhulikhel, I climbed the 1000 step Buddha. Yep, it was a thousand steps. My legs hurt today but it was absolutely worth it. We went back to Kathmandu yesterday via Baktapur. What a cool town. I have taken so many pictures that my camera batteries have died right there but luckily one of the other travelers is going to share.
