Lumbini, Nepal | 29 November, 2006 | $1.67 (my portion, shared with 2 others)
People always ask if I’m lonely traveling alone. It really isn’t and I’m rarely alone. After leaving Sui in Pokhara (she wanted to head to a National Park to find Tigers), I headed South toward the Indian border. On the way I met a nice Dutch couple who I ended up traveling with for the next three days. Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha, is only an hour from the Indian border and a nice, but rather unimpressive, place to break the journey.
