Come to Kathmandu!
Come to Kathmandu! A lot of people are scared to venture into Nepal because of the earthquake earlier this year and now the petrol/gas shortage caused by tensions with India, but I will say that neither I nor any tourist I met (there were a lot, I spent 3 weeks in Kathmandu and doing the Everest Base Camp trek) was affected by either of those conditions. I found Nepalis to be incredibly friendly and helpful and I was so impressed by how smoothly everything was running despite these challenges!
Insider Tip:La Bella Cafe: delicious, reasonably priced food (the meat is safe to eat!) Free fast wifi! Himalaya Java: AMAZING coffee (waaay better than any American coffee shop), their banana smoothies are to die for! Also free fast wifi! There's an awesome cellphone and photo shop where Thamel Marg (the main street) meets Tridevi Sadak/Thabahi Road), they were super professional, fast, and helpful. I got an Ncell SIM card from them that was immediately activated and visa photos within an hour.
