We managed to navigate the local buses from Boudhanath to Ratna park, and even get on the right bus to Bhaktapur. It helps that Ciel can pronounce Bhaktapur (unlike Dhaulagiri or Nagarkot). We met Steph, who we first saw in Sinuwa up by ABC, and shared the bus ride with her.
Now we're in the Peacock guesthouse with its very low ceilings - I wonder how long we can go before we bonk our heads. We spent far too much on lunch at the Peacock restaurant just across the square, but made up for it by buying a huge bag of oranges and bananas down the street for 100 rupees.
Now it's time to start exploring!
