On Monday had to leave - boy what a fun day. Vaporetto to Marco Polo Airport, plane to Rome then about a 3 hr layover, plane to Dubai. Holy Cow Batman! The airport is amazing, 24-7 activity and shopping with a hotel onsite. I had a 4.5 hour layover from 11:30 pm to 4:30 am. Then flight to New Delhi. A truly vile spot; airport is awful and the pollution unbelieveable; 3 miserable hours there and then escape to Kathmandu. And here I am.
On my own til Saturday when the Nepal/India tour starts. So far I've gotten lost and had to use a pedicab to get back to the hotel. Took awhile because he went in the wrong directions a little bonus tour for me. Then pretty much ripped me off over the price because I'm not real clear with the money yet. Today I'm mostly resting (2 naps so far) and trying to find acceptable places to eat (2 strikes on that so far). May hire a guide tomorrow. Don't know. Stay tuned.
