If you come to Nepal you may be able to enjoy one of the Tourism Expos/fairs/festivals that are sponsored by a town, caste or the government. They are usually in this ‘Tourism Board’ area when they come and there are often expeditions here of one sort or the other. This was the second one like this I got to attend here and several others throughout the Valley. This one, sponsored by the tourism board or government, didn’t have quite as much for the Western tourist this year as some of the other ones I’d been to. Most of the brochures were written in Nepalese, but I did get to see and learn some interesting things. The people, both behind the booth and local Nepali, were quite friendly and helpful.
Tip for dealing with lines while waiting: Nepali are horrible about crowding in front at places like the hospital pharmacy or anywhere you would expect a line to form. Just politely say, "Excuse me, please" and it will seem as though they just woke up and noticed you. Just use a polite tone and it works like magic-for tourists.
