Back to the Drawing Board - Things are NOT Improving in Nepal

Jump to last reply

I must have jinxed it with my previous post. Anyway, I had registered with the Embassy for e-mail security updates just yesterday and wouldn't you know it, I get an alert this morning saying a general strike by "The National Peoples' Front" had shut down Kathmandu with major intersections blocked, cars being burned etc. I am beginning to understand the situation now - while things can be quiet and "safe" for a couple of weeks at a time, one of these strikes can suddenly erupt with little or no warning. We will NOT be going to Nepal next month.

Will continue to work on alternate itineraries that hopefully won't cost us much more than we have already planned to spend.
