Katmandu living

the van de Wiel/Schou Hansen family blog

It was a tough choice - should we stay in Napal during what by all indications would be an uncertain beginning of May or should we go to Thailand for what might not be a more stable situation with Red Shirts on the streets - In the end we decided to go to Thailand - a good choice as Nepal we totally paralyzed for a week with tens of thousands of demonstrators on the street - Thailand on the other hand was OK although we did not manage to do as much shopping as usual as all major shopping malls were closed.

However, we did manage to spend some nice days by the pool and even manage to go to Hua Hin two and half hours drive South of Bangkok. So we have now returned (Lieke has already left again - this time for Bangladesh) with a very health color and renewed energy - As it turned out the kids didn't miss any school as it was closed for all the time we were away.
