We collected our passports from the Nepal Embassy at 10:30 then spent half an hour in the Natural History Museum. The displays there were well set out and informative but aimed more at children than adults so we didn’t hang a lot around too long.

Back at Ringo’s, we changed US$200 with the manager at a rate of 31 rupees per dollar, then set off by auto rickshaw over to the Handloom Expo ’92, where we spent a couple of hours browsing about in shops full of textiles, carpets and fabrics. Linda bought a double bed cover for 120 rupees and a set of tablecloths, napkins and placemats for 250 rupees.
