The Ride to Nepal…

I’m still trying to get my karma re-balanced after my last ride in India…

Buggers rubbed my nerves raw, I tell you…!!

Here are the photos in the mean time….

Time and poor internet connections here in Nepal are interfering with my drinking….er I mean writing….!!

Ah... Well that clarifies things... At least we know where we are going now...!!

Hey Tractorman...!! See that Tuk-Tuk on your left...?? That's where you are supposed to be...!! Wanker...!!

Dueling with trucks and buses on the way to Gorakhpur... And the biker on the left is about to run out of road...!!

See that strip of tar on your left...?? F***ing Knuckledhead...!! Another truck on the wrong side of the road...

The road was deceptively straight here, and with nobody to cut in front off, Raji fell asleep at the wheel...

Traffic jam in Gorakhpur... I sat in this for over an hour, until the Big Fella overheated and I had to pull over and let it cool down...

Another town, another foul-up...!! By this time, my nerves were shot...!! But things brightened up considerably after I kicked a fellow off his bike...!!

Village scene on the way to Sonauli... The woman on the left is making "Cow Chip Cookies"...

Wanting to retain their own sense of identity, the northerners decided to invent the "Gold Bar" Cow Dung fuel block...

Just short of the border, the road surface became even rougher, if that was possible...!!

Scenic countryside close to Sonauli Border...

This is Indian Immigration... I kid you not...!! No doors... Just a piece of canvas hanging over an open doorway...!!

Outside the Immigration office... The office is just two steps off the main road that runs through the town...

Welcome to Nepal...!! Late afternoon, and I still had to make my way through Nepalese Immigration and Customs...!! Not good...!!

A promise of peace and tranquility... But the Nepalese learned to drive in India....!!

The NANSC Hotel... A beacon in the sea of darkness...!! The first place I had stopped at looked like a Cambodian refugee camp...!!

When in Nepal... You gotta give the local stuff a try...!! Went down real smooth with a fine mutton curry...

And as a farewell to India, here’s a old Michael Naicker favourite of mine… This is the one where he calls the Rabbi…

Michael Naicker and the Rabbi…
