KTM: Kathmandu Durbar Square

The Kathmandu Durbar Square held the palaces of the Malla and Shah kings who ruled over the city. The area is actually quite picturesque with some notable sites including Kasthamandap and the Kumari Devi.

Peanut hates lay-overs

Particularly when 2 out of 3 flights have been delayed.

So he just snatched the computer and decided to read comics and ignore me.

KTM: Swayambhunath

The Kathmandu tour started out at Swayambhunath, which is also known as the monkey temple due to the thousands of monkeys that roam around.

I actually really liked. I love the concept of monkeys. They are so cute from a distance, they actually remind me of little hairy old people :-)

KTM: Patan Durbar Square

Patan Durbar Square, houses the residence of the former Patan royal family, and is a good representation of Newari architecture. Last time I was here, I got the 5 second tour around it, but this time I was able to see some more.

It's actually a really cute area.

And this lion seems a little more than happy to see us!

The group enjoy a tour day
