    Anyone been to Nepal?

    Hi guys, I was just wondering if anyone has been to Nepal before and how they liked it? Any info. welcome.

    Yes, I've been to Nepal. It was 1977. I enjoyed it very much. I suspect it's much different now. In the photo I (with the mustache) am enjoying a swim with some kids northeast of Kathmandu. After the swim I found a large leech on my ankle. After cycling away from the swim hole I stopped a guy hoping he had a cigarette I could use to chase the leech away. He did not, but offered a 2X4 instead. I declined that treatment, but soon found a salt seller who dropped a pinch on the leech which quickly fell off. The wound bled for several days.

    Wow, that is an interesting story, thanks. Just laughed at the 2x4 offered. I hear salt helps with leeches.
    I may be applying for a job there, but we'll see. I had a friend from Nepal when I worked in South Korea and he was so nice and told me I had to check out Nepal.

    So-so? You sound like one of my former South Korean students.. lol. I always teach them other words to say instead of the so-so word that doesn't tell me anything.
    good try, strolls.

    Long ago. It was OK. The food was like Indian, but not as flavorful.
