Swedish Group at Swaymbunath Temple

 

Today we had our local guide Mr Arjun showing us around in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu.
It’s always interesting for us westerners to see the different way of culture.

Also very impressing is the traffic and how things work out.
In our eyes it looks like chaos, but still everything works out.

We visited the Swaymbunath Temple more known as Monkey temple were you have a good view of the  4million city.
