Gorkha Durbar, home of Prithvi Narayan Shah, the man who unified Nepal in the 18th Century when nobody was looking.
He’s got a fort and temple at the top of a steep hill. Like Vlad the Impaler, but less famous and not an impaler. Which gives him an edge in my book.
I didn’t stay as long as would’ve been nice. Two things disrupted the peaceful solitude that this photo implies: (1) a group of local high-school boys and girls who followed me about and each had a photo taken with me. I think they thought I was Santa Claus. Not the first time. (2) I really had to go to the bathroom. It was cool though, I made it to the bathroom and everything was okay.
