Going Up (and Up and Up and Up) the Mountains

We have been to Nepal a couple times to visit friends, enjoy some relaxing times, and see monkeys (oh, and of course for company meetings), but both of the previous times we flew into the capital city, Kathmandu. 

Last month, for whatever reason, we passed on flying and piled three children into a car with some friends of ours, taking the two-day drive up to Kathmandu.


Nepal is a green, serene, relatively uncrowded country, with one good road...


That one good road stops at the edge of the mountains--maybe you've heard of them, the Himalayas--and from that point you go up, up, up...


down, down, up, up, up...

At which point you go above the clouds...


down, down, up, up...


Until you reach your destination.


And while we couldn't see Mt Everest on the drive like we can when we fly,

And although it took 18 hours instead of 4 to complete the journey...

We were still smiling at the end of it!
