7 Days in Kathmandu traveling

7 Days in Kathmandu

(April 13-20, 2018) With 2 nights pre-booking at the newly built 8848 Hostel, it was a painless start for me to begin a 30-day mini life in Kathmandu.

I've always given an honest answer and I've never been confrontational. I respect people's rights to believe in their chosen faith...and I don't push mine.
