Today is Thursday and after breakfast we were picked up by Wongchu to go and visit the Swedish Consular in Nepal Mr. Shresta and at the same time meet & congratulate the Consulars son and his wife Neelima who recently had their first child, a baby girl now one month and ten days old! The Consular also invited us to have a second breakfast of the day during which we discussed various matters concerning both Nepal and Sweden.
After the breakfast meeting we went out strolling around town and the Thamel area to do some shopping including Pashmina Schal as well as various books and maps.
