TUESDAY 14TH DECEMBER, 1976
"(Supposed to be arrival day in Kathmandu).
Janice [tent mate] and Ann left bus today - had "tent photos" - Jan, Jan, Jan and Di! Changed places for different cameras.
Then new Norwegian took photos of the whole group in front of bus - great heap of dead cameras on ground as he worked way through them! Janice in tears when we left! (Picked up Anders today - Norwegian - went to Amhurst Uni where Don cleaned loos! [Don is my eldest brother and did a holiday job at Amhurst, MS as a student]
Pleasant fields and trees. Stopped near school for lunch - nice salad. Cay stop at busy small town.
Border late afternon - coffee at cay shop where chickens wandering around - then fella picked them up and took them squawking behind a curtain - more squawking - the mind boggled as to what was happening!
Across border into Nepal without paying extra for visa. Camped by road - 10 o'clock curfew so road closed - very quiet.
Di, Jan and me had hysterics in tent talking bout Pen Overland princess on foamies with driver's pea under them - or something insane like that!"
