[ GOLDEN SHRINES & RED VERMILLION ] Kathmandu, Nepal


Last night after a super long bus journey up from Chitwan National park in the south of Nepal (where I spotted a baby Rhino, whilst riding on the back of an elephant no less!), I finally reached this tiny nation's capital - Kathmandu. I've spent my day walking around the old centre of the city, popping in and out of temples and marveling at the medieval architecture of Durbar Square. It's such a fascinating city with tightly packed streets selling everything from handicrafts and textiles to rickshaw rides and the oddest piles of bric-a-brac. One of the most striking things about the city is its beautiful blend of Hindu-meets-Buddhist iconography. I thought I'd share some of these snaps with you, so you get the gist!
