Pokhara, Nepal

The last 2 days we've been in Pokhara, Nepal.  We're staying at Lakeside which is full of shops, restaurants and bars.

Here's Matt playing pool-


Today I went golfing at the Himalayan Golf Course.  I rented a scooter but had difficulty reading the map so it took me a long time to get there!  For $70, I got clubs, balls, green fees, tees, a ball boy and a caddie.  As I was about to tee off, the manager came running out and asked me to wait for a local who was coming to play.  It's an unimaginable course, one that I wouldn't play again, but am glad I had the experience.  It is said to be one of the top ten courses to play in the world for its uniqueness, I guess.  The 6th hole is an island hole built in a river.  It's supposed to be the only one of its kind in the world.

Here's my ball boy and caddie-


This is the view from Hole 3 tee-box.  14 of the holes are in the valley-


This is how, for the most part, they keep the fairways "mowed" -  sheep-


And goats-


Here's my partner teeing off-


There were numerous bridges crossing the river-




These workers were mowing the fairway-


These women gathered the cut grass on the green.  On the left, we're heading to the next green-


This shows the change in elevation.  Holes 1, 2, 3 and 18 are up on top, the rest are in the valley-


The weather has been great and the food even better.  It was filet mignon for supper tonight!  I tried to book a para-gliding flight for tomorrow but it was full.  Next time!
