Nepal is the only country without a rectangular flag

Nepal is cool! We've been going to a whole bunch of temples which are really beautiful. Of course, after a while they all start to look the same. But still, seeing temples is always a favorite sight-seeing objective for me! Kathmandu is both dirty and crowded yet grassy and beautiful, depending on where you go. There's a lot to look at and take in.

Today, after a billion and one people asked us if we wanted tour guides, one man in particular decided that 'no thank you' wasn't good enough and he followed us around trying to convince us. No matter how many times we said no, he still followed. I finally said, "Can you please leave us alone now?" To which he replied, "You are the two ugliest Americans I have ever seen in my country!!!"

We also saw a lot of dead animals today near some temples. Most of them were missing heads and had the blood all around them. It was pretty gross but interesting to see. Obviously, this happens at home every day too, just not in front of us! Pre-wrapped Foodtown meat seems totally different than blood-soaked sidewalks with hooves on the side.
