Goodbye Pokhara

My time in and around Pokhara is coming to an end and tomorrow I fly back to Kathmandu and another visit to the orphanage in Phutung.

Pokhara is so chilled compared to Kathmandu and so much cleaner.  I'd definitely recommend it.  I've spent a week doing yoga by a lake, standing on my head, chanting and pouring warm salty water into my nostrils.  I've visited Chitwan and seen a rhino, trekked in the Annapurna region, cycled up a very steep hill and most importantly eaten some excellent crepes overlooking the lake.

I've resisted the temptation to have a tattoo or buy any super baggy yoga pants (although they do sell the pants in Kathmandu so there's still time).
