- This is supposed to be the second largest city in Nepal. It's like a dirty sprawling crossroads with buildings spreading out, no character really just rough streets of tiny bazaar shops.
- Apparently a lot of destruction was done 2 years ago when a bandh got out of hand.
- I found a cheap hotel easy enough and explored. I was accosted by friendly men often, there was a funfair, I bought fetta cheese, then as it got dark it was load shedding and everything was dark so no internet etc. Managed to go to a restaurant with proper fried rice instead of awful daal bhat.
- I suppose the next place is Bardia NP some Germans recommended it to me so I phoned their lodge and made a reservation.
