Although i came alone, i left with a lots of new friends and pleasant experiences which I will never forget. Initially my plan was to go there for volunteering to teach monks in a monastery – but i came back and got taught lots of new things from another culture and new sights of life…

When i flew to Nepal i was amazed with an astonishing view to columns of clouds in the air and felt like in a micro plane in between monster popcorn. The taxi driver listened to radio heads ‚creep‘ and i got a first impression of Nepali driving and overtaking. I stayed in Kathmandu for about 2 weeks teaching little Tibetan monks in a monastery. slept and ate what they had and found out their stories of life and what it means to be monk. In between my teaching enjoyed nightlife in Thamel with new volunteering western friends. I have never expected that kind of partying on small streets with plenty of bars, restaurants and also rock music and of course lots of alcohol. Bargained with taxi drivers, arm wrestled with shop owners for fun, layed in bed with open window and enjoyed the sound of Kathmandu at night – woman doing their dishes, people chatting, pan floit players…

Also did a small hike from Dhulikhel to namoboddha – the place where Buddha died, did meditation in a monastery, drank lots of butter milk tea. I did visit the famous lake district of Nepal pokara, enjoyed the sights of Devi’s Fall, took a boat across Phewa lake and went to the World Peace Pagoda and the International Mountain Museum. I will recommend Pokhara to anyone who like to lay down next to the beautiful lake crowned with majestic mountain called Machapuchre or Mt Fistail as a back drop.
