Shangri-La Kathmandu

We had arranged every element of our trip with a tour company that booked us in a standard Lilliuputian-sized room at the Shangri-La.  No where near the most luxurious Shangri-La in the chain.  It's a pretty dated hotel but an oasis of calm away from the noise and smells of the city.  But a wonderful and friendly staff made this a pleasant choice.   

Yeah, it was tiny but the beds were comfy, TV had lots of satellite channels and the Wifi was good.

Nice view of the lovely courtyard.

We ate all of our Kathmandu meals in indoor-outdoor-lawn seating "Coffee Shop" which featured a variety of excellent dishes at ridiculously cheap prices.  Our dinner with 3 beers, a starter and two mains was $23 including VAT and service.

My staple evening dish, the Kathi rolls... pulled Tandoori chicken in an fajita-style egg fried wrap.

And excellent breakfast.  

The Yak cheese was delicious.
