8 miles from the capital city… That’s maybe why I had a good feeling about it 🙈
Our local bus heading to Bhaktapur, masks on our faces, we met young girls after school, seated on each other knees because the bus was crowded, teaching us everything about Nepal as if we where student too:
“Nepal is a really open minded country where 85% are Hindu and other religions are really well accepted, everyone can live happily together, we don’t care if they are buddhists, muslims or catholics.”
And Ho! S*** it’s our stop! We run outside the bus and there we are… At the door of Bakthapur!
Quickly, we walked the wrong way and ended up outside the Dubar Square which allowed us to discover the “real life” of Nepalese.
After a few meeting with young Nepalese, we are back to the Dubar Square ready to eat the famous “Dal Bhat”!
Bhaktapur has the best-preserved palace courtyards and old city center in Nepal and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its rich culture, temples, and wood, metal and stone artworks!
C’est bien, c’est beau, c’est Unesco !
