We got no troubles
Life is the bubbles
Under the sea 🧜🏼♀️
The time we took Penelope to her first Disney trip. Although she slept through most of it and she’s not gonna remember anything, I will definitely remember that magical experience I got to share with my little baby. .

The city is surrounded by 4 Stupas as 4 corners of Patan, one at each corner of its cardinal points. These stupas are said to have been built by the famous Emperor Ashoka. This is one of the most elegant architectural treasures of which Patan is very proud
Today when I arrived in #Kathmandu I was exhausted from 30 hours of flying but knew I needed to stay awake the rest of the day in order to beat jet lag. I checked into my hotel, hopped in the shower + walked into a well known area of town to explore.
Along my walk I tried on cashmere’s and prayer beads, spotted stray dogs, and felt the wind of the motorbikes weave by me.
And I smelled a familiar smell: a concoction of incense + pollution which reminded me so much of the time I spent in Bali in 2009-10. First impressions of this city remind me so much of it. A balance of chaos + calm.
I normally don’t smile or become overly friendly when I first arrive in a new country and I’m walking around alone. I keep a straight face until I’m familiar with how a solo female traveler might be received. But I couldn’t help it here in Kathmandu. So I smiled at every person I passed. I asked local shop owners how their day was going, and met an entire Nepalese family in one of the shops who I spoke to for a good twenty minutes. I started to get beyond sleepy point and decided I’d just go one more block and make my way back.
Along my walk I crossed paths with the same guy three times. Tall and lanky wearing black - beautiful dark skin + long dark hair... the third time we crossed, he approached me, said hello + asked my name. His was Sampson. We exchanged words for a few minutes. He‘s from India. He asked what I did and when I told him I make films he shared he is a writer. He asked if I’d like to hear his story and I wanted to but I was starting to become so sleepy that I knew I couldn’t intently listen - but knew it was probably a good one.
I asked for his number so we could meet up another day, which he couldn’t remember - he’d left his phone at home because he’d just gone out for a walk. He didn’t use email and neither of us had a pen. It was a strange beautiful encounter. I told him I’d be back at the end of my trip + hoped that we’d bump into each other again. He said if I don’t see you again, have a beautiful life. Sometimes the shortest of encounters can leave such an impression on you. Off I went. Off he went. Weekend reminder. Look up and smile.
Tried the new Liquid Nitrogen icecream experience yet? DONT! this is the buzz around town with plenty food bloggers talking about it. So I thought it's a must try -321°! My verdict: complete waste of RS 260.
Food has to be about the flavor not just some new experience. I mean who is going to go back for flavorless viscous icecream just because there's cold smoke bubbling under it! I'm surprised not many food bloggers warned of the tasteless icecream part of the experience.
Or maybe this circus will work cz, as a friend rightly put it, you can run successful businesses out of looping in millennials who try out random stuff that's different and makes great Insta post!
We tried Yogi 🐻 favorite which they shout out as the Nutella order and the choco candy land - didn't taste of Nutella and couldn't taste the chocolate in the second one.
Some girls trying the dragon breath said the cheese balls are tasteless but enjoyed breathing out cold puffs of smoke.
The past has taught me to give every eatery a second chance so Will try some other items on the menu and will post and update.

A local plate of chowmein cannot get better than this. Sherpa ko chowmein is a hole-in-the-wall eatery in Dhapagal, Patan, that has elevated the taste and texture of the usual fast food. So, rather than getting a plate of oily yet dry thin noodles with a bunch of veggies and hard fried buff, you get a somehow gravilicious chowmein with tomatoes, onions, cabbage, and good cuts of stir-fried buff. Add a dash of their homemade chilli sauce to it and your lunch is done! 📍Location: In the galli, that stretches from Pimbahal to Dhaugal Bazaar. Its on the left, opposite Horizon School. 💰 Rs. 100
