The Peace Pagoda in Pokhara, Nepal
The following morning I headed out to breakfast. I wandered the streets, then found a small cafe with a fireplace, which had delicious breakfast. I sat by the fire, reading my book and enjoying the atmosphere.
I then headed down to the docks to take a boat to see the Peace Pagoda. You have to take a boat to get there. They stuck me in a boat by myself, but a group of foreigners got in the boat next to me. I asked if I could join them so I didn't have to take a boat by myself across a large lake. The were from Denmark, Holland and Australia.
A man rowed us very slowly across the lake. That poor boatsman has the worst job!
The Pagoda is a Buddhist pagoda, built in the 1940s.
After that, I wandered around a bit, then headed back to shower, read and go to bed.
