I want to list posts here that focus on trips within Kathmandu and the surrounding valley. Most visitors see local tourist attractions and then leave for treks. Admittedly, the city has become overcrowded, the roads congested, and the air and water polluted. However, it is home for me so I hope to make the best of it. Below are short descriptions of posts about these trips — past, present and future. Included are links to videos of trips made with students to sites most foreign visitors don’t usually make.
Here is a video of an excursion by preschool students with a few older students to the local Fun Park. It is a bit long but self-explanatory. For boys and girls who spend most of their time in very small classrooms with too many classmates, these excursions are worth their weight in ‘golden time’ spent out of the classroom.
