Everyone in the hotel is greeting others with "Happy New Year." Kind if nice to spend the New Year in Nepal.
I'm having breakfast with Clay, my roommate on the trek; he's one if the ones that had to stay over. Clay is headed to Australia for the Great Barrier Reef to dive, he's an ER. Doctor in New Zealand whose from Kansas, who plans to move to Chicago when his contract is up in New Zealand.
The hotel is a pretty international place, people from all over the world use this hotel as their lodging place while in Kathmandu. I would rate the hotel a 5 or 6 out of 10.
