Katmandu living

the van de Wiel/Schou Hansen family blog

Lieke and I are off today so we are trying to catch up on all the stuff we do not get around to do on a normal week. This morning we first went to the American Club Commissary to pick-up some stuff for the birthday party of Joop and after that we went to "Barbar Mahal Revisited", one of the fanciest shopping areas in Kathmandu to look at timber samples for the dinning table we want to have made.

Barbar Mahal is the stables of one of the old Rama Palaces (the palace itself was destroyed earlier) and is really cute.

When we came home we had a lamp installed that we have bought at Barbar Mahal earlier. It was not that simple as we could not find a ladder that could reach all the way to our celling in the living room so Santa, our gardner, had made a typical Asian scaffolding in the middle of our living room that the electrician could climb up on. After a few trails and errors we finally got the light to work.

It took all the people working for us to hold the scaffolding, including Santa and the guard. Bicky our driver was driving Lieke around town so he could not participate in our team building exercise.

While all the others were busy putting up the lamp, Liva, Joop and I took advantage of the empty kitchen and started this year Christmas season on making some Marzipan candy. Herman's bakery, our local baker, can deliver most that you need for these kind of thing and they have produced some marzipan. So we take some of it and rolled in some nuts and dipped it in chocolate....
