To Nepal and back

My trip to Nepal was very good and I think, until the last couple of days of it, I was able to basically keep my mind off of things here. I’ll hopefully have my pictures up in the next few days but unfortunately there are things that are much more pressing.

I’ve been rather overwhelmed with all the needs to be done before I leave. I still haven’t sold my car and some other things. I’m starting to get worried about selling the car. I need to get so many things signed off on before I can get my final work cheque. Speaking of which, it looks like I’ll have to have my internet cut off very soon as I need to have a letter saying it is cancelled and that takes three days after it is cancelled. Of course, you can’t arrange to have the internet cut off at a later date; they will cut it immediately after you request for it to me done. It seems like such a stupid system but I guess I shouldn’t be at all surprised as this place is aptly described by many as a “logic-free zone.”

While I am still quite upset about how things have turned out here, I am thinking that there really isn’t all that much I’ll miss about living here. It is definitely not the easiest place to live.
