So 4 weeks ago Jan and I set off on the very bumpy road from Kathmandu to Bhotang, the village where we were going to be teaching. It started off fairly comfortably with 4 of us in the jeep and a bit of tarmac road but then we soon picked up 2 more passengers so a bit of a tight squeeze and the tarmac ran out so most of the 6 hour journey was on rocks and dirt and very slow. Like 6 hours of off-roading. At least it wasn’t monsoon season when the road is not open at all due to landslides and the journey to Bhotang then involves a 6 hour walk once the jeep gets as far as it can.
