Fever has subsided to a manageable state. Could be paranoia, but I'm going to avoid seeing a doctor here if I can help it. Spent the whole morning in my hotel room writing postcards.

I've made my way to OR2K (pronounced "or 2 kay"), one of the top rated restaurants in Kathmandu on Tripadvisor. Nice, chill, all-around hipster interior. Just how hipster? Well, next to me is a monk sipping on espresso and working on his Macbook while listening to music on his iPhone 6. I have a hard time believing what I'm seeing, but I have photographic evidence.

Craving udon tonight.

Wandered into a Japanese eatery that was empty and subtly walked backwards out of the place. Got luckier on my second try and entered a restaurant where there was one other patron. Seems like folks in Thamel aren't crazy over Japanese food.

Paid no heed to my cough and ordered the tempura udon set. The udon arrived looking very unusual indeed. The food tasted okay. Can't complain considering the whole set cost less than USD4.
