Dark Shimmering over Pokhara's Waters

Well, it's 10 am Pokhara time. Spent the night at Mike's lakeside, still the choice spot for morning views across the lake, not to mention the Big Dipper last night in the dark shimmering above the still waters.

Even w/ all the hopes, confusion and construction of our Naya Nepal, this Phew Tal lake-side spot has kept its charm and peacefulness.

The lovely walkway that the YCL built along the shore by the pastel boats simply adds to the historic charm.

I came here first in 1979 and, sans doubt, I still love these idyllic and sentimental Pokhara scenes...

Not exactly Lago Lugano, but with those pure snows of Machhupuchare and the Annapurnas profoundly visible on the horizon, this compares w/ the sanctity and Nepali charm of our own backyard Budhanilkantha...
