To be honest, I’m not one for Valentine’s Day… and I didn’t think I’d see any fuss about it here in Kathmandu. But, as I learn every day, this place is full of surprises – turns out that Valentine’s Day is, in fact, celebrated here. Refreshingly, though, I didn’t see much V-Day buzz until February 13th. Now, if you’re gonna go in for hearts and roses and teddy bears and all that jazz, prepping one day in advance is just fine by me. It’s certainly better than seeing Valentine’s Day junk in stores and advertisements for several WEEKS in advance, like in the States. Kudos, Nepal. Two days and DONE.
Happy Valentine’s Day, ya’ll!
