Bouddha Stupa and Gokarna

A one day trip east across Kathmandu revealed many charming sights. First a buddhist quarter and then the Gokarna village. We unwarily attended a buddhist funeral ceremony and were forced to accept gifts of food, drinks, fruit and snacks, as if we were pilgrims coming from far away. Later we stumbled upon a young band, "D-friends Band", rehearsing at the edge of town. Our return was delayed by the heavy rain that seems to be the norm now after 3 pm.
