- Arrived in Kathmandu three hours late due to delayed departure from Istanbul the night before; waited in line about an hour to get a visa; but then still had a few hours in the afternoon to head downtown with Birgit to get something to eat and go shopping. We then returned to the airport, met up with everyone else to fly to Lumbini, where we waited for another hour or so for our bus to pick us up. General elections are a week from today, and much of the country is on strike; as a result, there are a lot of military and police blockades up which causes delays in transport.
