On the way back from Chitwan, we stopped at Manakamana. It is a town built on the top of a mountain. You have to ride a gondola up the mountain to get there. I can't imagine how hard it would be to carry the materials to build up there. They have a hindu temple there where they sacrifice live goats and chickens.  There was even blood on the floor of the gondola we were riding in. There were lots of people there. They grow wonderful mandarin oranges up there. Everyone was selling them. I always think of oranges growing in Florida or California, but not up in the mountains. It was a fun place to visit.

Hanging bridge in the valley not too far from
Manakamana. Elder Black's backside(missionary from
India) wouldn't you like to carry that load of tomatoes?
