Pictures of, Images, Picture
(November 2010 to February 2011)
View from the roof of my hotel in Pokhara.. These snow capped mountains remind
me of the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona, where I went to grad
Wooden doongas for rent at Phewa Tal Lake.
Lots of hiking in the surrounding hills. Paragliding too, if you're feeling
View of the Lake Side bicycle path in Pokhara, taken from the
International Peace Pagoda.
The road to the Peace Pagoda is ridiculously steep and exhausting on a touring
bike but the
view was great. Pokhara, Nepal
After 2 months on the road, my Schwalbe Marathon Plus bicycle touring
tire with a big (booted) gash. I had hoped to ride this through the mountains
to Katmandu. It makes a noticeable "thud - thud - thud."
Tire patch boot.
In Pokhara, Nepal. Phil from Scotland (sleeping) and Billy from England.
What long and sad traveling stories they tell. The power is out
again, all the candles are lit, and the boys know I will be down to the bar as
soon as I drain my laptop battery.
Marco from Switzerland and (me) Indiana Tim. Better believe we are up to
no good. We are both full time travelers and like to say "hard traveling
men" The food pictured on the wall is a long way from what the real food
looks like. 12 hours of power cuts/day makes ice cream impossible.
I accidentally bought the wrong size tire! Who would expect to find a 24"
touring tire? I'm not even sure what that fits. Later I traded it back to the
store for 3 inner tubes.
Getting organized for the trip to Kathmandu. Surely there must be something I
can get rid of.
Drinking sodas with friends in Pokhara.
William from England was the only one crazy enough to get in the water on a
freezing cold day.
View of the Annapurana Massif, part of the Himalaya range, seen from Pokhara.
Phewa Tal, Nepal's second largest lake, with reflections of the mountains.
My daily walk took me down this trail around the Phewa Tal Lake.
Mt. Machhapuchhare. In Nepalese, it means Fish Tail.
