I was excited for the holidays, on the last of My examination. Marijke Van Suchtelen came to Nepal for her short trip from Netherland. She was a friend of my father. This was the second time for her to be in Nepal. She had a visa for 2 weeks.  I was very happy and nervous to meet her at the airport. Next day she joined for the lunch and we planned for the holidays. We roam Kathmandu around 3 or 4 days. Marijke wants to visit coffee plantation so went there. Ujwal Rana is the first founder of coffee plantation in Nepal at Nuwakot district.All my family members and Marijke went to Nuwakot. It was a long way so we had more fun. When we were in the office there were two guides they showed everything. It was nice. The place was surrounded by trees and river. We were at Nuwakot for the whole day. In the evening we come back home.

Our next plan was to go pokhara .We planned to stay in pokhara for 3days and 4 nights.  When we were at pokhara it was raining, so it was hard to find a  hotel .The hotel environment was very nice. Marijke got a lot of friends at hotel. The founder of hotel was amazing she knows almost every language .She spoke in Nepali  with me. Our hotel was near the lake side so first, we went to Fewa Lake. We enjoyed a lot  but we hadn’t taken a camera.World peace pagoda is near the fewa lake .So we went to pagoda by that way.It was on the top of hill we walked for 45 minutes. There is a stupa of Gautma Buddha .After that we were walking to the Davis falls. The lady showed the village way,so we went and people were very surprised to see Marijke.  She liked pokhara better than Kathmandu.On the next day, after taking breakfast we went to sarangkot for paragliding.So at 12:00 clock we were at sarangkot and she flew up in the air. After 1hr she come back and she shared her experience, after listening to her I also wanted to do.At the restaurant the waiter thought I am tourist guide so he asked me the information.I was so surprised because the another person asked me the same question .One shopkeeper gave me the card and told me to bring tourist in his shop.We were very tired so suddenly we went to hotel to took rest . I wanted to go to begnas lake so  after an hour we  went there.

We took many pictures . On the second last day we went to bat cave.The taxi driver told it is so scary so I was afraid. All the bat were on the top of the cave.While going inside we should take the torch-light with us by the help of him we came out.We were free on that day so we went for shopping.I bought a comic book and read it.It was very nice.That day was the last day so we gossiped all the time.Next day we took a trip to Baglung.On that day weather was not so good .On the way to Kusma  there is a Nepal’s longest footbridge in Nepal.It is 344 meter longs,117 meter high.

Then in the afternoon we arrived in Baglung.In the evening we met ama at lekhani.We stayed there for 2 days and 3 nights .We went to different place in lekhani.She liked the village and  people a lot.It was a little difficult for Marijke to be in lekhani because there is no any facilities .After a week we come back to Kathmandu.The next day we went shopping and we shop a lot.We had a fun time.Finally,the day come for Marijke to leave the country.We went to airport with her to say good bye .
