Bus Rides, Hostels, and Power Outages...
We woke up this morning and took a stroll down to the river bed before we had to say goodbye to the Chitwan jungle.
We left the Gorkha Resort and boarded a bus that took us on a 6hour long bus ride back to Kathmandu. Despite the beautiful scenery it was a bus ride that did not pass quickly.
we got back to the Elbrus Home hostel to find out that we did not have a room waiting for us, as we thought we did. After the long bus ride and the four flight ascent up to the hostel, this was not the news we were looking for. The hostel manager said he had another hostel just five minutes away. He promised vacancy and the same amenities and assured us we would not be disappointed. We hailed a cab and arrived at the Avalon Hotel just a few minutes later. They ushered us up five flights of stairs to a room much smaller than the one we had in Ebris Home. The bathroom was the size of a shoebox and the TV was no bigger than an iPhone. Without any other choices we unpacked our stuff and settled in looking forward to a nice TV movie before bedtime. Unfortunately, the power went out as we were unpacking and didn't come back on the whole night.
