well, comrade. apart from the fact that i am an expert at idleness, i was doing portraits and paintings to earn a living and exploring the beautiful region. so, basically just living and enjoying the place and people. pokhara, in particular, i loved. did an 11 day trek in the mountains, on my own, but spent most of my time in kathmandu and nearby.
