Our destination was Thimi. It is the ancient center of pottery in Nepal. The town was famous for its daily use items, made from the local clay. Pottery now competes with cheap plastics from China. What was the impact on the town? The driver dropped us off, however Thimi is not a tourist destination, so we were not sure where to go, the road we were on was one small temple after another. We followed the temples down the road, but we grew skeptical about the destination. Then we found a small square with pottery. A old gentleman waved to us to follow. We did, and the magic began. It opened our eyes to an interesting location.

Finally we reach a corner and the protesters were let off. Their buses did a u-turn and left the road clear for us to travel.
The trip around the other side of Kathmandu was uneventful, and we were home!
