To be honest, I was a bit overwhelmed by my first day in Kathmandu. It was definitely a cool place, but maybe I was tired of cities and tourists after so much traveling. But I went to several of the top suggested tourist areas downtown (Durbur Square, Thamel, and Freak Street). Then I took a cab to an old pedestrian-only town called Bhaktapur. On the way home, my cab driver could not find my place so we spent a lot of time driving around and asking for directions. By the time I got back, the day was pretty much over.
