It’s been tough going today the road just ran out and it was more like a track for most of the way, but at least I’ve made it to Nepal.
Managed to get lost coming through Motihari this morning I think that’s where it all started to go wrong as that’s when the road ran out!
Whilst I was lost and trying to work out which way to go a friendly shop keeper invited me in for a cup of tea, which is always nice, plus it gave me a chance to try and work out which way to go in the peace and quite of his shop.
I saw a working elephant today but unfortunately it was a bit too far away to get a decent picture of!
The run up to the border was the predictable chaotic scene with mile after mile of queuing trucks! I nearly wen’t straight across the border without getting an exit stamp it was so chaotic but luckily at this point I was walking trying to get past all the lorries and somebody pointed me in the right direction, had they not there was no way I would have seen it, it was just some inconspicuous room that never really had any signage saying what it was!
After the normal bureaucratic form filling in I received my exit stamp and was allowed to continue on!
Obtaining my visa on Nepal side was easy enough I just forgot I needed to pay for the visa in US$ so I had to quickly find mine from where I’d stashed them!
Initial thoughts on Nepal the food portions are a lot bigger and beer seems to be more readily available!
