August 20, 2007: Kathmandu to Bangkok
We are finally leaving Kathmandu! Samir picked us up at 11 am and brought us to the airport.
Outside of the terminal was chaos as usual and it took us a while to find the end of the line of the
actual travelers wanting to get into the terminal. There were more people blocking doors and
walkways than people travelling. Even inside the terminal there seemed to be more people not
travelling than travellers, although only travellers were allowed inside. The Thai Air flight was delayed
by about 1 hour. We landed in Bangkok around 7 pm local time, got our luggage and took a cab to
our hotel, the Sofitel Silom Road. Marc and I had dinner at their Mediterranean Restaurant and then
we had a nightcab at the hotel bar on the 37th floor. It was great sleeping in those very comfy beds!!!
