Bhaktapur and Nagarkot

November 29, 2013 we went on a trip to Bhaktapur and Nagarkot. Sister Nila Dodson from the Asia Area Office went with us and also Britain(Mendenhalls nephew) from Australia went. Bhaktapur is about 45 min. to an hour away from Kathmandu. It is an old town and has a town square called "Dubar Square" It has many old buildings and temples and very interesting architecture. After we visited there we drove another half hour up the mountain to Nagarkot to a resort hotel. It was a very beautiful view from there and the clouds lifted somewhat so we could see the Himalyian Mountains. We had lunch there.
