Elizabeth has spoken fondly of “the family next door” to where she and Emma stayed in Paljorling Camp. Pressed for details, she just says that they’re really nice. This family next door is still kind of a mystery for me.
On January 26, the family next door took the girls out for a drive around Pokhara.
Scenes from an SUV window:
Elizabeth liked the narrow, winding roads.
They visited Pema Tsal Sakya Monastery.
The Family Next Door:
The monastery sits on a hilltop, with sweeping views of the surrounding area.
The colorful cloth squares are prayer flags.
The Prayer Wheel.
I like the peacock embellishments on the gray building.
Back in the SUV. The view out the window is mustard crops; mustard oil is a popular condiment in Nepal.
The ubiquitous Phewa Tal
This is the room Emma and Elizabeth stayed in at Paljorling Camp. So cozy!
Meanwhile, on this day the U.S. confirmed three more cases of Covid-19, bringing the nationwide total up to five confirmed cases. No one was worried yet.
