Goodbye Nepal

Now into India...

On January 10th we left Nepal after spending a bit more than a month there. It was a bone jarring 11 hour drive from Lumbini in Nepal (where Buddha was born) to the holy city of Varanasi in India. We ended our day with a sunset float on the Ganges river watching some of the Hindu prayer ceremonies and we released small candles on leaf boats to carry our wishes to the gods. It was a nice end to a long day.

Here is a very small selection of photos from Nepal ... As you can imagine we have about a million of them! We are wearing our Canada mitts at Everest base camp on Christmas Day. After the trekking we spent a few more days in Kathmandu before heading to Cheitwan national park - we did see a rhino but it was at night so no good photos. The last one is Evan with Buddha in Lumbini.
