We had a marathon morning of shopping and wandering through the maze that is the Thamel neighborhood of Kathmandu. Hundreds of shops, an overwhelming number of choices and many, many purchases. After buying friendship bracelets, the team escaped to the oasis called Garden of Dreams, where they enjoyed a tranquil lunch.
Tonight we celebrated with one last dinner together. Fun and merriment was had by all. Tomorrow we will leave Kathmandu to fly back home.
