The nerve-wracking landing is proof that every activity you experience in Nepal is an adventure in itself.I wonder, did I just ride Air Asia or entered a time capsule? It felt like I'm in a time warp. I felt giddy when my feet hit the grounds of Tribhuvan International Airport, could be from excitement or the thin air, that, I'm not sure. But maybe it's the anticipation of the very long queues we'll have to endure to formally enter Nepal.
We followed the huge crowd walking towards the immigration. There were several long lines of foreigners queuing up to secure a Nepal Visa. I'm glad I did my homework and applied online for the Nepal Tourist Visa, it saved us the hassle of filling up the forms and attaching a passport size photo to it. Still, we have to line up and pay the 25 USD tourist visa fee.

Cooky, look behind me, I whispered.
"Ohlalaaaah!", he muffled, obviously excited with what he just saw.
I think he's following us, I whispered again and then we laugh like thrilled teenagers kidding ourselves.

Nepal is madness, as is love.
